How to Organize Your Kitchen for Back-to-School Success!

It’s hard to believe that in a few weeks, the kids will be back in school and the craziness will begin. We'll be battling hectic mornings, homework and after-school activity craziness! But, if you organize your kitchen ahead of time, packing lunches and serving after-school snacks will be a cinch!  Take a plastic bin that can fit in your fridge. Fill it with:

  • apple slices
  • cheese sticks
  • yogurts
  • hummus cups
  • mini carrot packs
  • pudding cups 

 Take a separate bin that fits on a shelf in your pantry and fill it with dry snacks. Foods like:

  • Skinny Pop popcorn, chips and Goldfish bags
  • granola bars
  • applesauce and fruit cups
  • nuts 
  • sunflower seeds

Now you, or they, can easily grab items to fill their lunch boxes or to use as after-school snacks.  A money-saving tip is to buy big boxes of snacks at Costco or Target and then put individual portions in small ziplocks.
