A Single Suggestion: Partition your Portions!

I try to follow this tip every week… and every week, it saves me so much.  Reading anything on this blog will tell you that I LOVE tupperware!  It’s a slight obsession.  Any size.  Any shape.  I’ll take it.  So my daily packed lunch is totally-tupperwared-out.  But whether you use plastic bags or tupperware, this tip will work.

At the beginning of each week OR when you get it all home from the grocery store, go ahead and partition your portions.  Split your baby carrots into different containers.  Cut your celery or cantaloupe right away.  Count out your pretzels, crackers, or cookies and zip up the bag.  Make enough to either use up the item or have enough for the week.  When it comes time to pack your lunch, you’re ready.

PLUS, it helps you curb your snacking.  If everything is already bagged and boxed, it’s ready to be used as a whole – not just a sneaky bite here or there.
