Do you eat leftovers as is or do you mix it with other foods to make a new meal?

Depends on what it is. 

Mostly DF takes the leftovers in his lunch for work the next day, or I freeze the leftovers fo DF to take the following week etc....

I am not a huge leftover person for certain foods like, potatoes and salads, leftover veggie dishes etc...and DF does not care so he gets them.

We do both. If there's a lot of several items we eat them. If there is a little of a lot of different things thats when I make refrigerator soup, casserole etc.

 I do both. I use the chicken from left over wings in other meals for the week.

Both. Sometimes we will just eat the left overs or say it is chicken or something we will add it to a different meal

I love leftovers so I eat them. To me the leftovers are sometimes better then the night before :)

I normally bring leftovers to work for my lunch... if there is enough left though, I will use it for another dinner. Last night I made mini-meatloaves from ground turkey. I made 6 and we each had one... so we have 3 left that I planning on reheating tonight. I'll just heat up left over mashed potatoes and make a veggie. Seems like we don't eat as much when it's so hot outside.

My DH is awful about eating leftovers. He always says "yeah, go ahead and save that and I'll eat it later" and yet... there it always sits in the frig for days. Drives me nuts. Leftovers are great!!

Sometimes I make double portions of meat...but we use the extra for a completely different meal.

Leftovers are typically eaten for lunch the next day.

Depends on what it is. If it's something that's already made (like lasagna), I'll eat it as is. If it's just single ingredients (like a piece of steak or grilled chicken), I'll make a new meal out of it.
