We have a snack drawer. Two, actually. Yep, we sure do. All the snacky things right at my children’s fingertips. It’s a blessing and a curse. Blessing because they can get their snacks themselves. Curse because sometimes they get snacks without asking first.
They often prefer snacks over dinner.
Something’s wrong with my children.
Or maybe something’s wrong with my dinners.
Anyway, we buy in bulk. We have a large family and most of the time it’s cheaper to buy in bulk.
So, what do you do when you come home from, say Costco, and you have all those big boxes of snacks?
I found an easy solution that doesn’t require an additional purchase.
And that’s always a good thing.
So when I need to refill the fruit snacks, I open up the new box . . .
If you look to the right of the fruit snacks you’ll see our Saltine crackers. I do the same thing with them, but they get put in nicely otherwise they won’t fit.
Isn’t that marvelous? Indeed it is.
When the old box gets gross and disgusting, I then use the new box to replace the old box so the new box becomes the old box.
Sometimes you need a different container, but sometimes you don’t. In this case, it’s easier to just use the same type of box the snacks came in.
Instant container = instantly organized.
