Keeping Track of Leftovers

August 16, 2004

Don't you hate it when you clean out the fridge and have a bunch of leftovers from weeks gone by? One way to help keep track of you leftovers is to put a leftovers list on the door of your fridge. When you put something in there, write down what it is and the date. When you remove it, cross it off the list.

On the first of the month, we print out a calendar off the computer and put it on the side of the fridge with a marker that hangs by a string. Everyday, we just jot down what we had for dinner or if we made tuna salad, opened a package of lunch meat, etc.

Designate an Area In Your Fridge for Leftovers. Leftovers usually need to be used first so create a space on the top shelf of your fridge just for leftovers. It will help you use them before they go bad and prevent moldy surprises when you clean out your fridge.

Since I live alone, when I cook an item of food or open a whole can, I put the leftover amount usually at least a cup in a l/2 pint jelly jar. I use a stick on file folder label or mailing label and I write the date and contents.

One of my best food tip is to plan meals at least 2 weeks to a month at a time. Make a menu for each day and a dessert. This works well in using what you have and not wasting food.
