Steps To Keep Your Leftovers Organized

  1. Made too much of a meal and you know it’s not going to be eaten? Go ahead and freeze it.
  2. If you have a frozen leftover meal, add it to recipes to use up leftovers list so you can include it in your future meal plans.
  3. Freeze it flat! Flat plastic bags makes them easy to store. Label the bottom for easy viewing of contents.
  4. Make an “Eat Me Now” Box! Add a clear box to your fridge with a sign that says “Eat Me Now”! That way your family will know that these items should be scavenged first.
  5. Label It! When you put an item in the fridge or freezer, label when the expiration date is or when you should toss it if it’s a homemade meal. Use a sticky note on plastic containers, freezer tape, or keep a Sharpie marker handy for quicker labeling.
