  • Five days depending on what you did with it. For example the dark meat (after dinner) can be made into a soup which can last for 10 days .

  • 5 days if it was cooled and put away correctly otherwise it can be screwed and be gone in 1 1/2 days

  • i would not eat leftover turkey any more, unless i had frozen it. other non-meat stuff i would personally go on a casy by case basis (mashed potatoes i would still eat today and tomorrow if they looked/smelled okay, veggies the same).
