We all love a good deal. I will, if I have the time, shop around for a good deal. Not as much now that I’m shopping with two children in tow, but I do what I can, when I can! And today, man. I struck the JACKPOT! It was a savings “life hack,” to use the parlance of our time. I’m not really sure it would have been classified as a “life hack” in a world without Pinterest, but I found a great deal, and I’m here to talk about it!
My kiddos love goldfish crackers. During the holidays, I love stocking up on lunch packs of holiday goldfish crackers. They pass them out to their friends, and I love putting them in their lunches. A little bit of fun in the middle of the day, because who doesn’t love holiday touches!? The weekend after a holiday I head myself over to the stores to pick up these holiday-themed snacks for half off!! HALF OFF! Did I mention how much I love a good deal? The snacks are just as good as they were on Valentine’s Day, except it’s a few days after the holiday, and they are fifty percent off. Hot Damn. I scan the aisle for other themed treats to throw in the lunches, like fruit snacks or graham cracker treats. I buy in bulk, and have snacks to last until the next holiday rolls around! (Need I remind anyone that all stores are fully stocked with Cadbury Crème Eggs? In February?)
Moms- Grocery stores, discount stores, and drug stores are a gold mine for these treats. Buy your seasonal items now, and revel in your savings as you pack lunches tomorrow. And so what if you throw in a bag of Dove Chocolate Hearts. At fifty percent off retail? You go get that deal.
