Can't bear another leftover turkey sandwich or re-heated mashed potatoes, but don't want the delicious food to go to waste?

There's an easy solution: freeze it.

But be careful with the amount of time it stays in your freezer.

We know freezing food stops bacteria growth, so, in theory, frozen food can be used indefinitely. But we also know from experience that the quality of the food goes down over time.

Freezerlabels.net put together a list of recommended freezer storage times for popular food items:

Baked bread rolls: 2-3 months

Chicken and turkey parts: up to 9 months

Cooked Ham: 2 months

Butter: 6-9 months

Milk: 3-6 months
