    I have a fantastic farmers market just up the street from me and I try to go every weekend to purchase food for the week.

    Knowing that something isn't expired on the sell by date, I know that I have a few more days to consume it. This means that I will be throwing away much less food than I previously would have because it isn't really expired yet.
