Stop overspending on packed lunches! These tips and tricks make it easy to send your kids to school with nutritious and satisfying fare—without breaking the grocery budget.
Let's face it: Weeknights (and weekday mornings) are busy. Prep as much as you can for a week's worth of lunches over the weekend to avoid a last-minute scramble. If your kids love taking tuna salad or chicken salad, whip them up on Sunday and put them in an air-tight storage container in the fridge until it's time to pack lunch. Likewise, hard-boil a few eggs, chop up carrots or celery, slice a block of cheese, and more to shave time off your morning routine.
