Saving Bacon Fat

Tomorrow I'm going on a picnic and I'm making a bunch of turkey wraps that will include bacon. I cook my bacon in the oven (it's way easier), but the idea of throwing out all the bacon fat pains me.

Is it safe to refrigerate and use and a later time for soups and things like that? If so, how long will it keep in the refrigerator?

Thanks in advance!
