Tasty Tuesday: Back to School lunch Ideas

Here are some Frugal Tips for packing your own lunch:

  • Make your own lunchables: Buy a reusable container. Fill it with your own selections such as cut up cheese, bologna, ham or turkey, and crackers. Add a cookie if you want.
  • Make your own pudding, jello and repackage in reusable containers.
  • Buy large containers of yogurts and repackage in reusable containers.
  • Make your own Uncrustables or you can make a week's worth of PB&J 
  • Make  your own trail mix. I do this for my Grace because she is allergic to nuts... we  use sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, chocolate chips, pretzel balls.
  • Invest in a thermos. You can put hot dogs in hot water in the thermos, and they can have hot dogs, along with leftovers from dinner ( chili, soups)
  • Don't buy the prepackaged snacks, repackage larger bags into small ziplock bags.
  • Free First Day of School Lunch Printable here: free-back-to-school-printables
  • Muffins are cheap and great way to add fruit or veggies to lunch.. You can also make things meatloaf in muffin pans for an easy lunch.
