Store Leftovers in Plastic Bags

I used to hate the hassle of putting the left-overs away after our family get-togethers or reunions. I'd have lots of dishes to wash, dry, and put away, before I could sit and relax afterward. Then, I came up with the brilliant idea of pouring the left-overs in large or small plastic bags. I can get much more in the refrigerator this way, plus I don't have extra dirty dishes the next day.


To reheat them, I simply pour the food that was left over right into a dish to put them in to bake, cook, or whatever. It has saved me many, many hours of having to clean up things after a social get-together! Plus less time in the kitchen and more time to be with my family!

I don't get this one. Putting left overs in plastic bags before putting them in the fridge. You still have a dirty dish to wash when you put the food in the dish to heat. Am I missing something?
