This works really well for younger kiddos, preschoolers or families with 1-2 kiddos.
We know use an entire cabinet for our 4 boys, ages 5 to 13. 😉
I have a new drawer in my kitchen.
Well, okay. It’s not a new drawer. But I’ve revamped all the drawers in the kitchen so that I can have a “lunch packing drawer.” It’s now right next to the silverware drawer, right in the middle of my kitchen…for easiest access.
In my lunch drawer…
- Reusable containers
- Snack plastic baggies
- Premade snack packs (think pretzel bags and trail mix bags)
- Prepackaged snacks for the lunchbox
- Lunchbox Love notes
- Washable lunch napkins (under the lunchbox notes)
- Reusable juice or water boxes
So now I won’t have to open 3 different drawers and 2 cabinets to get the lunches packed. And on Sunday nights, I can reload the drawer with prepackaged goodies and water boxes, etc.
What time saving tips do you have to share that will make packing a lunch a snap?!
