Yes, the Saran Wrap is designed to store and throw away leftovers. Heavens, I couldn't just throw them away!
When I am smart, I put a meal of leftovers in Tupperware and freeze it. Much better than a TV dinner.
My mother does the margerine container thing. She has collected so many that she stores them (in old bread bags) 10 containers plus lids per bag in her cellar. She donated some (5 bags, 10 bags?) to a Girl Scout Camp. She still has tons. If those are too small she has Cool Whip containers, and Potato Salad from the Deli containers (1/2 pound and pound). She uses carrot bags for Xmas decorations, reuses tin foil and bread bags. And keeps all of this so neatly organized in her cupboards!
I have learned not to keep hamburger rolls in my freezer when the meal is past. All I have is the freezer in my refrigerator, and it quickly fills with hamburger rolls. I can't eat the rolls that are in my freezer, though, because they are all stale. When I can no longer put ice cream in my freezer because there are too many rolls, I know it is time to throw them out. Now I give them to my son, who lives with his father. I know they will get eaten over there.
