You can save money on your groceries and be more green by skipping single-serving snacks at the grocery store.
Instead of buying the single servings and snack sizes, buy regular size, or even bulk, and your cost per ounce will be much lower, saving you lots of money in the long run.
Each Sunday, put a weeks’ worth of snacks in reusable containers. It makes lunch packing easier, saves time assembling lunches, and keeps single-use plastic containers out of our landfills and oceans.
How to Pack Them
We love these BPA-Free reusable zipper bags for things like fruit, veggies, pretzels, nuts, dried fruit, chips, jerky, popcorn, and chips. Line them up in the cupboard or fridge and grab them when you’re ready.
Reusable beeswax wraps are another easy, eco-friendly solution for wrapping fruit and other snacks.
These stackable bento boxes are great for bigger snacks and lunches with the added bonus of saving space in the refrigerator.
Other great reusable containers are baby food jars, mini mason jars, and stainless steel tins.
My sanity-saving go to is to make packs of peanut-free homemade trail mix for my family to keep in their bags to stave off the after-school / post-work hangries.
