here is an idea i use

Okay, so i am really bad about throwing away left overs that i have stored in my fridge, and before i know it, its a science project, so here is what i do (for those of you out there like me)
I put all of my left overs in those dispolable containers, the ones i do remember to eat, i clean the containers, the ones i forget to eat, i just throw them in the trash so i don't have to open it up, clean it out and worry about the stains, smell, and everything else that comes with science projects!!!
Not a reallly good solution, i know, but hey, I'm a forgettfull person, and the last thing i do remember is not left overs in the fridge!

About those leftovers :confused:

A co-worker always brought the best lunches to be microwaved. Leftovers, she explained, that she divided into single servings & placed directly into the freezer rather than constantly facing 'moldy mysteries" a few days later.

Ever since hearing that frugal tip, if we have leftovers that anyone might want to eat at a later date, they go to the freezer, pronto! Has saved me several $$$ on Tupperware and/or Rubbermaid containers over the past couple of years.

The only downside I could see to her way of doing this was that she didn't, as a rule, label her containers & she never knew what she was having for lunch until she microwaved it!

Dadia, I do this as well. In fact I make extra or double batches of stuff on purpose so I can freeze them. Then if there is a night we don't feel like cooking or if someone doesn't want what we are ahving they get a homemade frozen dinner. Better for your health and pocketbook. Makes for great lunches too. By the time it is lunch time it is almost thawed and I don't ahve to wrorry about putting them in the fridge to keep cold.
Until we "meat" again, break an "egg"
