Personally I use memory/rotation schedule
Just like a common restaurant technique... first in, first out... meaning when you buy new supplies, put them behind/under your older stuff, so you eat the older first...
With cans, i use a sharpie marker to actually write the expiration date on the top of the lid, for easier visibility
I just try to get down there a few times a week and use some stuff up, then buy more next time at the store

We use little round colored stickers, like those used for garage sales. It's not an inventory, but it does show us at a quick glance which items need to be used first. Most of our stuff has a fairly long shelf life, so we use a different color for each year that they expire. As things get close to expiration, we either use them up or donate them.
