I also throw them out (when I don't eat them). It used to bother me, but I decided it balanced out because I'm pretty frugal about using every bit of food that doesn't have to be thrown away, especially anything that can be turned into soup stock (which is just about anything), or can be made over (I tend to make-over rather than simply reheat leftovers. Leftover meatloaf is cubed and made into meatballs. Leftover roast is made into barbecue or soup...).
