You're kidding, right?

Nope, it was a serious question. My former next door neighbor used to throw out all the leftovers from every meal because her DH didn't like leftovers and didn't want them to be kept. He also wouldn't eat any meat that had been frozen, so her grocery bill was huge compared to mine even though we had the same family make-up because she'd throw out whatever was left over, and she had to grocery shop every week. I, on the other hand, always shopped all the sales and stuck it all in my freezer. I do agree that foods lose some flavor after being frozen, but it's not enough of a difference to me to offset the cost of not being able to shop the sales.

So I know people who always throw the leftovers, and wondered if those of you who throw out the remnants of a pot of coffee fell into that category. I can see that this is not typically true, but I just wasn't sure.
