Snack Time

I'm pretty sure that it you put bat guano in individual snack packs, my kids would probably eat it.
Because in their economy, anything pre-packaged into individual bags by the factory has got to be more savory, more delicious, more valuable than those big family size boxes.

But let's run a little financial report on those individual snack packs, shall we?

Okay, okay, I'll leave you alone. You love those little snack packs and I'm going to ruin your mojo.

So let's just put it this way...in a house with eight children, it is not economically feasible to provide each Octamom kid with an individual snack pack for our snack sessions that run throughout the day.

As in, we would be out of house and home in short order if we tried to keep these ravenous hoards in little bits of colorfully printed foil envelopes of Goldfish.

Hence, this system.


I've started making our own snack packs, scooping 1/2 cup measurements of snacking goodness into little snack bags.


And then those little snack bags go into a bin that the kids are allowed to pilfer through and find a 'snack pack' that's meet their palate.


I'm sure some of you had already been using this method at your homes...I'm just a little slow on the uptake. But the kids are thrilled to have their own individual bags...because things just taste better out of your own little baggie.
