Cereal and grains. While these things surprisingly do expire, things such as cereal or potato chips can be consumed for up to a year after they have expired. Stale cereal can always be converted into breadcrumbs for dishes or a pie crust.
Eggs. Uncooked eggs or expired eggs can cause salmonella so make sure your eggs are good by doing this simple check. Take a glass of water and put the egg into the liquid. If it floats, the egg is rotten, but if it sinks, the egg is still edible.
Dairy. Dairy is obviously not something that should be messed around with. Most dairy products can last a night or two after its expiration date but after that, it’s best to just toss it out.
