Packing your child’s school lunches can be an effective way to save cash, according to a blog by Equifax.
Instead of relying on the deli for meat, buy it in bulk. Cooking and cutting meat on your own can save a lot of money that would otherwise be spent on additional labor.
Use different grains and varieties of bread. Tortillas, pitas and sandwich thins can change things up for your child so they don’t get bored of the same thing every day.
When buy-one-get-one-free sales are available for bread, store one loaf in the freezer, Stephanie Nelson, from CouponMom.com and author of The Coupon Mom’s Guide to Cutting Your Grocery Bills in Half, told Equifax.
Another idea to ease lunch packing includes cooking extra food for dinner and packing it for lunch the next day.
Instead of buying individually wrapped snacks, buy in bulk and package them into the proper serving sizes yourself.
