Science experiments

I live alone and am having trouble keeping up with leftovers. Every few months I start wondering where all my plastic containers are, and then I do a survey of the fridge and pull out half a dozen long-forgotten meals, some of which are not even recognizable anymore. Gross, and also sad, though truthfully, I often lose interest in leftovers after a couple of meals' worth. Anyone have any good suggestions for preventing this? My freezer is always jammed, so freezing portions doesn't help (and they would get forgotten as well).
