Isn't everyone independently coming up with the "milk algorithm?" Here's a carton of milk (packet) with a expiration date. Put it in your fridge (buffer). When you're ready to take it out, compare the expiration date to your current date. If it's not expired, drink it (send it). If it's expired, pour it out.
