Works for Me Wednesday

PROBLEM: My kids love to eat Lunchables, but I don't love spending $2.50 apiece on a little tray of lunchmeat, cheese, and crackers.

SOLUTION: For the cost of a couple of Lunchables, I can buy ingredients to make my own for a week or more. I just cut up some lunchmeat and cheese, put it on a plate with some crackers, and voila, homemade Lunchables. The kids are just as happy as with the real thing; happier, really, because they can have these a lot more often!

So this week homemade Lunchables are what's working for me. To see what works for others, head over to for more WFMW ideas!

I do the same thing. Lunchables cost too much to have on a regualr basis and my kids dont' even eat it all.

Totally the way to go.
