How to Save Over $400 Per Year Packing School Lunches


I have been packing my kids’ lunches for school for the past 14 years – that’s a whole lot of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches! Luckily my girls have always been good about requesting fun reusable lunchware which has saved me quite a bit of cash over time. Did you know you can save over $400 per year just by switching to reusable lunchware – and of course, it is so much more eco-friendly, too. Take a look at this graphic:


That’s enough to make you want to rethink all those paper bags and pre-packaged goldfish packets! 

Here are a few of my favorite choices for re-usable lunchware – (don’t forget to add some cute lunch box notes featuring Laura Kelly Pet Shop) – and my kids will tell you, the more compartments the better!!
