Back To School

Back To School Saving Money On Lunch

When I was younger my mom would always send me to school with my sandwich in a plastic bag and thrown in a brown paper bag.  If you were anything like me neither of these made it to lunch.  I was not a gentle kid I threw it everywhere and not only was my sandwich in a big ball mess but my brown paper page had ripped by lunch time.  My poor mom wasted so much money a year not only on the plastic and paper bags but also on the food that was no good by lunch time (I just threw it away).

Now a days we have much better alternatives, not only for your budget but also for your kid’s food to last till lunch time.  Did you know that you can save an average of $435 a year by using Eco friendly lunch items?  You all know me I am all about saving.  You will also have a lot better alternatives for packing the lunch not the same old boring bags and containers.  Some great options come from Abe’s market and you can find a few great ones below.
