school lunch

My main focus these day as we try to re-organize our lives is eating more healthy while saving money. One of the areas of great chaos in my life was preparing packed lunches for the girls.
I reserched it online and found this neat idea of laptop lunches. It's a lunch system where can pack several lunch items in a single container. they have a wonderful and inspiring section on the website where people share pictures of their lunch ideas and I just had to recreate it!
I found some cheap containers at Hy-Vee and what's so cool about them is that the cover helps protect different compartments so the food stays seperate.
Here's the girls lunch for the 1st day of school.
Grilled cheese sandwich with pretzels and a different veggie for each kid.
