Don't be shy - Collect the Condiment packs

According to the highly respected Belleville News-Democrat here are the best estimates for how long to keep packets of various condiments: One year for mayo, relish, BBQ sauce, tartar sauce, horseradish sauce, maple syrup, salad dressings and ketchup. One to two years for olive oil, Parmesan cheese, taco sauce, mustard and soy sauce. Two to three years for jelly in plastic tubs. Three to four years for Tabasco sauce, pepper and vinegar. Honey along with salt and sugar can be kept indefinitely. Fast food restaurants are a trap for a cheap one, but there are some tricks. Some value menues are good. Two tacos for 99 cents at JITB, $2 6 peice McNuggets etc. Some items especially breakfast items don't really require sauce, but they still offer it, and if they don't you can still ask for it. The mayonaise and the ranch are the best to ask for - especially if you don't need anything for that order.
