As your kids head back to school. We are faced with two issues one is our budget, and the other is they hate everything. Okay, maybe it is my kids that hate everything I packed and then I had to unpacked rotten lunches that smelled worse than my son’s shoes after he plays soccer in them. That was until I figured out a secret. It all has to do with presentation. I also learned the 80/ 20 rule. It is powerful stuff.
This is what I do to keep my budget in balance. I head to my local Save-A-Lot store because it saves me time and money. They have already figured out how to get the best prices, so I just show up, pick the items my kid’s love, and pack a lunch. I do have one limiting factor it is that I have children with nut allergies. I am so fearful that people will not know about their allergies that I place these cards in the lunchbox. I made these allergy alert printables for you as well because keeping kids safe is a passion of mine.
What is the 80/20 rule you may be wondering? It is my secret to lunch success. I make sure to pack 80% of the items my kids love and 20% of those that they need to eat to keep them healthy. I have packed three lunch options below so you can see what I mean.
I encourage you to do your back-to-school at Save-A-Lot. I would like to offer you the opportunity to begin your school year right by shopping in a place that will save you 40% off your food bill.
