This year, for the beginning of school I started a new tradition. I was getting so tired of feeling guilty about sending little plastic baggies in my kids' school lunches ( I do use reusable containers but once you add up a container for a sandwich, a container for cookies/muffin, and sometimes a container for fruit )it starts to add up and then they don't fit in the kids cute lunch bags. Pretty soon you're buying a huge honkin' lunch bag as big as their backpack and where do they put their agendas and homework or library books?! Well, my solution in the past has been to pack their cookie or muffin or other snack item in plastic snack baggies. But no more!
My new tradition is going to be to let each of my kids pick out a cute reusable snack baggie! And this year as I was ordering up the snack bags I decided to add a set of reusable sandwich wrappers as well, because honestly a lot of times I would just wrap their sandwiches in plastic wrap or throw them in a plastic sandwich baggie because it was easier/fit better than containers. Aren't they cute?!
