So, here's a question: are you providing offerings to be consumed by Eshu, or collected?

If for consumption, there's no reason to keep used offerings on His altar - you can wait a period of time and then dispose of them in some fashion.  It isn't stealing to remove offerings that have been accepted and used.

If for collection, you might want to think about more permanent items than food/drink.  For example, Sekhmet wears a hematite bracelet I gave Her.  It is meant to remain with Her physically and spiritually, whereas the food/drink I give my deities are meant to nourish Their ka and then be consumed by me.

that's the thing, the items I've got so far,can be left indefinitely. they won't need to be replaced,so what do I do for the weekly honourings/offerings? do I find items that will purposely need to be replaced?
they're not for me therefor him. truthfully I've only ever delt with food and drink offerings that are offered during ritual and I leave them till they aren't looking so good then I remove them and do fresh offerings next time around. the idea of simply doing small offerings every Monday is new to me. within ritual the approach I've seen for eshu is smoke blown onto his stone figurine and alcohol sprayed onto the stone too,while saying phrases I've yet to decipher.

I've asked several people in several places and searched the Internet and no one can seem to answer for me how the Monday offerings work outside calling him up in ritual.

I did get a partial answer in my other thread from oyumaya? the person who had experience in that deity,but further questions have gone unanswered.

I do have a shrine alter in the appropriate location for Eshu with permanent offers and symbo
ism,black and red colours,groups of three,toys,candy even a toy plastic black female goat figurine.
should I just light a candle for him on Mondays?
I'm still looking for palm oil.
