Making little bits useful

If you have a lot of ‘too small to be useful’ leftovers, put them in the freezer as soon as they’re left over instead of thinking you “will use it somehow in the next few days” and leaving it in the fridge. Dedicate a box or drawer to these. Then eventually you’ll have enough together that you can make something useful out of many saved portions of similar food types. Date them so you know how old they are and can use the oldest first.
