Do you buy foods that are going to expire soon for a discounted price? If the discount I am being offered is at least 25 percent, I will always buy the food that is going to expire. However, I will not buy the large container when the expiry date is just about a week away. I will always buy food near expiry date as long ads there is still some time left and I am getting big discounts,. This will save a lot of money.
