Sometimes. It depends on the product.
Yes. I use my own judgment.

Yes, depends on the item. Food is suppose to be good for at least a week after 'last day of sale' and usually is good longer. Food 'best before' is fine well after the date as it just means it may not taste the same or loses the nutrition, but isn't spoiled.
