Snack Bag Ideas

As a mom, I have a few Snack Bag Ideas up my sleeve to help keep my sanity and one of those tricks is to make up snack baggies ahead of time so that I am always ready to go with a quick snack or school lunch item.

My entire family gets into the assembly line production as we make up various snack bags for the week. I use two plastic dishpans to store my snacks, or you can use a shoe box, aluminum foil pan, or whatever containers work for you. I make one container for the pantry and one for the refrigerator and fill each with ready to go snacks.

Not only is this method a sanity saver but it is also much more frugal than purchasing pre-packaged snack size things. Here are 40 ideas for snack bags (for kids or adults…pre-portioned snacks is a great way to control your calories too!)
