I tend to buy meat in large packages, so the day I come home from the store, I repackage it into a size for our family, then freeze. I pull out just what I need on the da y I plan to cook it.
I find it helpful to actually look in the fridge and take an inventory every 2-3 days. You can then think, oh, those carrots are getting old, better cook them tonight. If you have a roast in the freezer, you pull it out and cook it the next day.
Quiche is a good "use-up" meal around here--leftover meat, veggies, milk, cheese, eggs. Lots of milk can also become mac and cheese. Either of those meals can be eaten that day or go into the freezer for another day.
