Quick snack ideas help our family to never leave home, hungry!

As a large family of seven, unplanned trips to the drive-thru, taco truck, or convenience store can break the budget, fast! There is a general rule in my house that we don’t leave home, hungry.  If we plan to eat out that’s okay, but we try not to spend money just because we’re too busy to eat at home.  That can get expensive, so we depend on quick snack ideas! Our chaotic schedules keep the kids on-the-go.  They keep me on-the-go.  Our meal times might be rushed, but we try to enjoy them together. I know it’s cheesy, but we bond over a plate of classic Macaroni & Cheese!  I love sharing my childhood favorites with my children.


Even the Dollar Menu at the drive-thru can get very expensive in my family!

We’re constantly on-the-go and our schedules can be super chaotic! On the days when we’re mostly at home, it seems like I never leave the kitchen.  By the time I’m done cleaning up after breakfast, I’m rushing to prepare lunch.  Once again, I clean. Before I can catch my breath, I’m starting dinner! With Summer vacation just a few weeks away, I’m preparing for the excitement stress of having the kids home during the day.  I’m in even more desperate need of quick snack ideas!  I couldn’t pass up the awesome #1DollarDeals when I was at Walmart the other day.  It’s not only more inexpensive than the Dollar Menu at the Drive Thru, it also ends up being faster.
