Storing leftover turkey

Have been enjoying reading everyone's musings on their T-day adventures (or misadventures!), esp. loving the new recipes I am picking up here and there. I was sick with a terrible cold through the whole thing, but managed to host the fam, since it seems to have become our tradition. Must admit, I was glad to get to rest up the next day : )

Even with our brood of 14, we still managed to have lots of leftover turkey. I just can't bring myself to eat any more of it tonight, but may make a turkey noodle casserole tomorrow night. Just how long is it safe to keep leftover turkey in the fridge? Tomorrow will be 4 days . . . My freezer is (literally) packed full, so I am hoping to just be able to keep it in the fridge as long as is safe. Thoughts?
