If you’re going over budget on your grocery spending, it could be because you’re not taking everything into account when it comes to feeding your family.
Are you budgeting for snacks?
The kids get hungry and want snacks about 3:00 pm each day.
Here is how you can set up a snack drawer in your fridge.
This is what I do to make a snack area in the fridge accessible to my little kids who can not reach high.
I have a drawer that holds washed and ready to eat produce, juice boxes, yogurt, cheese sticks, apple sauce, fruit cups, etc. (The drawer above the snack drawer is for lunch meat, hot dogs, block and shredded cheese. The drawer below the snack drawer is where I keep the produce I cook with and stuff to make salads.)
Obviously it does not stay this organized all the time, and I am ok with that. It certainly gets messy and scattered. No matter what, they know where healthy snacks are in the fridge!
Super simple. Totally manageable. Love it!
