Not everyone likes to play fast and loose with their gastrointestinal well being. Keep "Oooh! Chinese!" from turning into "Oh my God why, Chinese!" with a leftovers log.
At the household tips blog Re-Nest they have a simple but effective log file available as a PDF for both your fridge and freezer. Write down the food, the date you put it in the fridge, and a reminder to eat it. Whether it's time to eat or clean out your fridge you'll have a clear guide to what needs to get the boot or take a trip to the microwave. Have a trick of your own for keeping your leftovers from taking over your fridge and catching you with a salmonella sneak attack? Sound off in the comments below.
