Frozen PB&J

We have reached the last day of our 12 days of back to school lunch ideas. I hope you have found some inspiration to add some fun meals to your child’s lunch box.

As I was grabbing a few snacks at the store for my kids last week they were in the frozen section and my son was begging for Uncrustables. This would be so easy to pop in his lunch box but I knew I could make them at home for a lot cheaper.

This idea is very easy and very customizable. Make  enough in advance so you have enough for the school week.

Freezer Friendly No Crust Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwiches

Step 1 – Grab your favorite bread, peanut butter, and jelly. Using the palm of your hand, flatten the bread.

pb 1

Step 2 – Spread your peanut butter and jelly into the center of the bread. Do not put the PB&J all over the sandwich because it will leak out when you press the sides.

Sandwich 3

Step 3 – Cut off the crust and press the sides together with a fork to seal in the peanut butter and jelly.

PB 2

Step 4 – Put them in a plastic bag and freeze. When your child eats lunch the sandwich should be defrosted and ready to eat.

Sandwich 1

You can make these and store them up to 30 days. I love that I can make them with whatever flavor of jelly and peanut butter each child likes. We can even change up the type of bread we use.  I hope this makes it easier for you to make lunch each day!

Make sure you comeback next month because we will have #12DaysOf Slow Cooker Meals! I love these types of meals – and they will be perfect for Fall.

Did you miss a recipe? Make sure you check out the linky below with all 12 Back to School Lunch Ideas!



This sandwich sounds amazing! I could just imagine how wonderful all of these flavors taste together!

Today’s post is a simple creation that has BIG rewards — a Fruity Fluffernutter Sandwich!  The recipe was a collaborative creation by the owner of Mom Does Reviews, her senior staff writer, Victoria, and Victoria’s daughter.

Most of Victoria’s kids are not major sandwich eaters, so when Pam requested a great school lunch sandwich post, she scrambled to come up with something kids would like. Victoria asked her daughter what sandwich to make and Jasmine said “Fluffernutter!  That’s what kids like!”

The conversation continued. Pamela suggested adding kiwi, Victoria said you can’t have Kiwi without strawberries, and the rest is… another blog post!  Grab this recipe form Mom Does Reviews HERE.

 New Back To School Shoes – Reebok Kids Twistform Sneakers #Twistform #IC #AD

I had so much fun doing Back to School shopping this year for my kids. They have always been homeschooled and this year they started public school, so it’s the first time we have had to shop for new clothes, shoes, and supplies.

My oldest son started 5th grade. It’s time for him to buy a sneaker that is a more durable for gym class and all the other things he will be doing in school. I wanted a brand that had a good reputation for durability at an affordable price.  He wanted a sneaker that was comfortable and cool. We easily agreed that the Reebok Twistform sneaker was the perfect option. These shoes are very fun and stylish!  Read more…

Kidgets’ Diapers - Perfect For Your Baby + Very Affordable!

When you have a baby, you quickly realize that you go through a lot of diapers. In the beginning I changed them a lot because I did not want anything to leak out. It’s so much more work when you also have to change sheets and clothes on your baby. Then after a few weeks, I would have a better idea of my baby’s schedule.

Kidgets’ Diapers - Perfect For Your Baby + Very Affordable!

Finding a quality diaper at an affordable price is always a lot of work. You have to watch the sales and clip some coupons. And maybe even visit a few stores to get all the deals. None of this is easy with a baby. I remember the first time I tried Kidgets’ Diapers from Family Dollar. I didn’t have to clip a coupon and it cost less than other diapers – even with coupons and sales. Plus the store was only about a mile from my house. Read more…

This month I decided to try a new way of grocery shopping. No more huge trips to the grocery store that fill up my cart and cost me a small fortune. Im not going to stockpile anymore and I am not going to buy things just because we may need it in a few days. This way of shopping has cost me more money than I have saved and I am sure I have thrown away hundreds of dollars away each month on food.  Read more…
