Getting Ready for Back to School – Lunches

Last year I shared some organizing tips that have made going back to school way easier for our family. But, I have to be honest, our lunch station is my absolute favorite.

It’s so awesome. Aside from the sandwiches and drinks everything is in one place. If I know it’s going to be a particularly busy morning or if I stayed up too late, I will make sandwiches the night before and store them in the fridge. Then, in the morning, all I have to do is put everything in the bag!

I despise making lunches, but I despise wasting money on food they won’t eat even more. So, homemade lunches it is!

After I grocery shop I take some time (or I make the kids take some time) to bag up the cookies, and the crackers and store them in their tubs. Then I open the packages of granola bars, and/or fruit bars and dump them in their tub.  I also keep a jar of plastic spoons at hand – easy to grab and toss in for the fruit cups, or pudding cups. Everything is ready to go!

Making bags of lunch ingredients ahead of time will save loads of time each school day!

Do you have a spot in your kitchen that you could dedicate to this purpose? You won’t be sorry if you do!!

I am busy packing for my very first Haven blogging conference!! I’m super excited and a tad overwhelmed. I cannot wait to learn all of the things and meet tons of new friends!!


Don’t worry, I’ll be back soon to share how much fun we had at Haven!!  😉
