There are 13 days left of school for my kids. THIRTEEN days. (can you imagine my panicked face? I’m going to have 5 kids here all day, everyday. As much as I adore my kids – I think the beginning of summer vacation brings a little panic out in many Stay At Home Moms. Our routines are going to be thrown out the window and we’ll create new ones but still…panic)
This isn’t a “Mommy Blog” so I’ll get to the money saving part!
If you pack your children’s lunches you may want to use these next weeks of summer vacation to continue to buy those lunch box friendly items. I put a large box in my storage area so I can put those “For School” items in it.
Since we’ll be at home the need for juice boxes and sandwich bags will be reduced. They can eat off napkins and out of cups!
However there will still be lunch box friendly sales, deals and coupons so I will continue to take advantage of them. However if I put them in the pantry- they will use them!
Each week we post a list of lunchbox friendly deals on Saturday so look out for those. Then continue to stock up during the summer!
Towards the end of summer I’ll pick up 5-6 loaves of bread (or more) and make DIY Uncrustables and put in the freezer.
Don’t let the summer deals pass you by – keep future events in mind when the deals come around!
