Hi Ya’ll!! I am a creative, coupon clipping, and frugal living mom in the Tri-Cities TN. I have been couponing for over 15 years, and I am always looking for ways to save a buck.I love to cook in my crock pot, look for bargins,decorate and makes crafts on the cheap too, and shop Consignment sales. I like to encourage local folks to shop local by doing reviews of local businesses. A Frugal Chick always gives back and I share ideas on how to do that too.

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.
