I love to cook, but I despise left over grease! You can't put it down the sink, you can't dump it into the trash can... It's just a MESS. I had read a long time ago and finally started putting it into practice that when you need to drain grease from your food just put a piece of aluminum foil in a bowl, drain grease into it, freeze THEN throw it in the trash. No mess, Yay!
