Be Sure to Date it!
(a repeat, but good to remember)
Just a gentle reminder to date a product when you bring it home,
and/or when you open it. I use a fine tip sharpie pen.
This will help you to remember the age of your supplies,
since some craft products such as glue and adhesives
do not have a forever shelf life.
It is also good to date ink and ink pads,
especially after opened.
And, if you are like me--can't remember what I
had for dinner last night, much less when I purchased
something, this is a must-do!
