I believe is was GB Mark who sent me a link from the Consumerist about Approved Food. The British site sells expired, yet edible, food for up to half off.
Apparently it's gotten quite a bump in traffic these last few months. I'm always using things a little past the date, ever since I learned in food science that those dates don't mean much as far as safety goes, it's just pointless to be throwing away food (i.e. money) right now. And I guess a lot of other people feel the same way.
