First In, First Out - whatever gets in first, gets sold first.

It is one of the methods commonly used to calculate the value of inventory on hand at the end of an accounting period and the cost of goods sold during the period. This method assumes that inventory purchased or manufactured first is sold first and newer inventory remains unsold. Thus, cost of older inventory is assigned to cost of goods sold.
