I'm trying to lose a few pounds and shape up, but am on a tight budget! Instead of paying extra money for the new individual sized "100 calorie" bag snacks, what I do is buy a box of my favorite snack food. When I get home, I grab some snack sized baggies, then put a 100-120 calorie serving in each bag. (For example, 16 of my favorite crackers are 120 calories).
I usually do this with a few different varieties (crackers, pretzels, mini cookies, etc.), then put the baggies in a larger container. When I want a snack, I just go grab a bag of whatever snack I feel like having! It's already portioned out, so I don't have to worry that I'll overindulge.
What a great idea! Great way to lose inches and save money, how can you go wrong? Have a sunny day! (08/16/2005)
