Kitchen Tip Tuesday - Make your own single servings
This may not be new to many of you, but here goes anyway.
I buy applesauce, yogurt, chips, cookies etc...in large packages and repackage into single servings for my son's lunches.
I could easily buy those cute little containers of applesauce or that yogurt that comes in a tube...but with a little thought and very little effort, I buy the big containers and then dish it out into little Tupperware like containers for a much cheaper price.
I buy big bags of chips and put them into small snack-sized bags. My son even brings home the baggies so I can reuse them for more chips.
Instead of those convenient cheese sticks - I pack my son a one ounce chunk of cheddar.
He seems to like and eat everything - so why waste my money when a little of my time can save so much!
