Leftovers Economy: What do you do with your Thanksgiving surplus? Post your photos to our map.

Turkeys await their fate at the Willie Bird Turkey Farm in Sonoma, California.

The Natural Resources Defense Council estimates that Americans trash 40 percent of our entire food supply. That works out to as much as $2,000 per year for a family of four. But how does that stand up on Thanksgiving, a holiday known for its leftovers?

We decided to put the question to you: Do you contribute to America's food waste with your Thanksgiving leftovers?

Post your after Thanksgiving meal photos on Instagram with the hashtag #leftovers and include our handle @MarketplaceAPM to see your photo magically appear on our map.
