Works for me Wednesday.....

In an effort to cut down the cost of packed lunches for school, I gathered a few of these containers.........


a cheap can of apple sauce.......

a box of pudding mix from the discount grocery store.....

and made my own individual packs of apple sauce and pudding.




Inexpensive lunches work for me!!

I do this for my youngest going to daycare. It's great as long as I get my tupperware back LOL

Lisa, I have the same issue when I send these to school with my 1st grade DS. I try to remind him to bring the container back home. At first he did not but now he is much better with it.

I'm trying to get better at things like this. We waste WAY too much money! Thanks for the tip!

LOL! Great minds think alike! There are so many bright sides to our power outage...I've still got a $14 off $140 grocery coupon, so now my "re" stocking up will cost a bit less! Happy Wednesday!

Thanks for stopping by my blog today. :)
Your site looks so interesting! I couldn't help but scroll through all the posts until I got to the ticker that says 99 days until Christmas. Yikes! Good thing I've been taking $20 out of every paycheck this month to start saving up. Hopefully by mid-December I'll be set.
We try to be very frugal at our house too. (Hence my More With Less posts) Have you heard of the cookbook by the same name? It is so challenging to find healthy, safe, environmental, AND frugal options. I've found that cookbook to be very helpful in cutting our food cost and making our meals more nutritious.

What a great idea for when my toddlers are asking for a snack!

I need to be more organized. I am always rushing around. We eat too much fast food because I am not organized.

Great idea! I'm always rushing at the last minute to put school lunches together. If I would spend a few minutes one night, it would be a little less stressful. Thanks for sharing!

Wow that is so creative!!! I bet you really save making it all yourself. The square set of containers looks like the same set I have that sit in a white spin tray lol
