Are you Ready for Some FOOTBALL!

I am so excited it is one of my favorite times of the year.  My boys are on the football field.  Have I mentioned how much I LOVE FOOTBALL!

School Lunches (snacks)

Now that school is back in session I am packing 10 lunches and snacks per week.  Here is how I pack 10 salty snacks (chips, pretzels, crackers) for the week.

I love the snack sized Ziploc bags that can be purchased at the Dollar Tree.  I was able to get these bags from Sam’s on sale for .74 and I purchased all of my bagged/boxed snacks from the Dollar Tree for $1.00 each.




Sunday is my prep day.  I open the bags, separate a serving into each bag, zip them up and store them in the snack pail.


Serving size varies per item, but I’m usually pretty generous with the amount.  I can usually get about 6 servings out of each box of crackers and 8 servings out of the pretzels.  When it’s time to pack a lunch I just grab each sons desired snack and toss it in the lunch box.

Each bag @ .01
Serving of crackers @ .16
Serving of pretzels @ .125
Total .13 or .17 each (less than a bag of chips)

Summer 2014

I have been absent from my blog because I have been busy enjoying the summer with my babies.  We visited Six Flags over Georgia and enjoyed the new water park there.  We crossed just about everything off of our Summer Fun list.   We went to the movies and the pool every week.  Summer 2014 was a blast!
