How often do they get eaten? Or do they just go to waste?

I usually eat them for lunch the following day.  I'd say that less than 10% of our leftovers go to waste.

Ours rarely get thrown out...why bother saving if that's going to happen?  DH usually takes leftovers to work, and if there's more than one serving leftover I'll have some for my lunch too.  There are meals where I purposefully make leftovers so we have something for lunch.  The only time something gets thrown out is if it gets lost and hidden in the fridge for more than a week or so.

I always try to make sure there is some for hubby to take to work the next night. Rarely do we have much after he takes it to work. So it gets eating all the time.

I try to make things that I can put a different spin on the next day.

Example. Mac and cheese leftover so I can make fried Mac and cheese balls or I can add hamburger to the Mac and cheese. Stuff like that.

Only once in a while does something get forgotten and then thrown out. My husband takes leftovers to work and we eat them for lunch the next day.

We usually don't have leftovers. My boys have a good appetite.

It's about 50/50. I'm picky about leftovers. There's just some things that I won't eat left over. SO isn't as picky.
