    When you have unused kethcup packets from take-out, do you throw it away or empty it into your ketchup bottle?

    Bottom bin of the fridge.
    I have ketchup, duck sauce, arby's sauce, a few mustards, and anything else that comes in a packet.
    I figure I'll be ready for armageddon, that stuff lasts forever right?

    I usually throw it away. Don't really care for them...it's just ketchup.
    And when I eat out, I usually eat it at the restraunt I got the food from - I don't take any home.
    But, I guess it is a waste to throw it away.
    Oh well, we've got a medium-sized plastic container of ketchup in case I ever want some (and it's refrigerated, meaning it's nice 'n' cool).

    If I gather enough of them, I'll transfer to a new container, but usually sits in my fridge.

    yeah seriously who squeezes them into existing bottles =p normal people just keep the packets. my mum collects sugar packets from all the cafes she ever goes to and always carrys around like 50 packets in her bag >.> just in case some random cafe doesnt have sugar for her 3 spoons per cup (!!), or if theres ever a world sugar shortage =/

    I don't ever use ketchup.
    Drowns out flavour, and is too sweet IMO.
    But, to keep on topic, I keep all the border sauce from Taco Bell...
    Little, my mom also keeps all that crazy amounts of sugar.
    Tim Horton's, generic ones, Starbucks', Second Cup's, Timothy's,...
    All that sugar is extreme.

    I just keep the packets and put them in a bin in the fridge.

    Edit: Don't you hate it when you step in ketchup?
    Yuck, it's the worst thing ever.

    I throw all that crap in the bottom bin in the fridge, because eventually buying ketchup will be forgotten at the store and I'll need a packet or two. Don't really use ketchup much though.
