We made too much rice for our dinner, and had a lot left over. Rather than waste it, I put it into portions in freezer bags. I tied a knot half way-up after squeezing the air out, and put it in the refrigerator. It will keep for about 5 days until you need some for another meal. Pop it in the microwave on full power for 1 minute-10 seconds. Place on plate, cut the bag under the knot, and pour out. Saved the rice, saved on time and money.

When hubby and I eat at a Chinese restaurant, we usually have leftover rice. I bring it home and freeze it. I thaw it in the microwave with a little added water and it's as good as new. The monetary savings may be minor, but I love the convenience.
