Now that I'm making yogurt, I always have whey leftover. It can be used to replace liquid in baking, diluted for watering plants, as a starter for yogurt, as an addition to pet food,and can be added to the compost pile.
This picture shows frozen whey. You can freeze whey and use as needed.

I'm watching carbs and sugar. I was told whey has a lot of carbs. I could be wrong, though.
This is something I learned from my late great-aunt Azizi. Besides using whey in your cooking, you can use whey as a face toner or on your hands to balance your pH and rejuvenate your skin. I like to dip towelettes in a cup of whey and rest it on my face, then rinse it off.
You can also pour a few cups of it into a warm bath for an all-over glow. For shiny hair, comb some into your hair after shampooing and rinsing. Let it sit for a few minutes, then rinse out.
These make really light and fluffy pancakes. I am going to freeze the rest for great breakfasts on busy mornings.
