One big cost for kids going to school is eating. No seriously. My kids each have to bring a snack and drink to school. Pre-packaged snacks can be upwards of .50 cents, if not more. Times that by 5 days a week and 35 weeks a year (or however long they are in school...) - well that adds up. Plus - half the time, the kid doesn't even eat the snack.
Anyways - so as my cabinets are dwindling - so are the snack options. So today I turned to my pal, The Popcorn Maker:
I'm pretty sure this bag of popcorn that I found buried in my cabinet was about $2. I remember having a .75/1 coupon for it. Regardless - this bag of popcorn can produce a ton of popcorn. So the kids and I popped some popcorn and voila:
This was obviously very easy to do. Pull out the popcorn machine, pop some popcorn, throw it in a bag. Plus - it's pretty darn healthy.
