  • about 2 days. but if i know im not gonna eat it, it usually goes in the freezer and gets reused for lunch! OR it goes to the pig (my mom works with someone who has a pig, so we NEVER waste food- it all goes to her!)

  • Up to a week. We've never gotten sick from leftovers. On the off chance something actually makes it to a week in there, it goes to the dog - so no food wasted in this house either.

  • We follow the same guidelines at home that we do at work (I work in a group home with people who have developmental disabilities). The rule at work is 3 days. If its still in the fridge at the end of the evening shift on the 3rd day we trash it. That's what I do at home too.
