I have partnered with Life of Dad and Straight Talk Wireless for this promotion. If you don’t know about Straight Talk Wireless, it’s the leading no-contract wireless carrier, offering customers the best phones on the best networks for less.
School is so close – just around the corner… not sure that we are quite ready yet, but we can’t stop it from coming. Preparing your child for a new school year can be overwhelming – from adjusting to a new routine to packing lunches and figuring out how to stay connected with busy schedules.
Today, I wanted to share how we pack lunches in less than a minute every morning.
No one in our house wants to make lunches for 4 kids every morning- it would take up our whole morning, so we have come up with a better solution. It works for our family and helps us to get out of the door on time. Between getting everyone ready & fed, it can be hard if we don’t use little hacks like this lunch-packing one.
How it works:
We make all of our lunches on Sunday night. Yep- 20 lunches every Sunday night. Making them all at once just makes our day more efficient. It’s just like Straight Talk Wireless – it adds some speed to our mornings. Straight Talk Wireless has added more high-speed data to its best phone plans. Now you can get more high-speed data for the same low price with the latest smartphones like the Samsung Galaxy S8.
Every Sunday night, we make 20 sandwiches for the week.
A few ideas:
Turkey & Cheese
Ham & Cheese
Turkey & Ham Roll-ups
Pepperoni & Cheese roll-ups
So, every Sunday night, we make all of the sandwiches, label the bags and then freeze them.
When school mornings come, they grab one sandwich from the freezer and put it into their lunch box. It is thawed by lunchtime and it keeps the other food cold.
Once they grab their lunches, they are free to get the rest of their food from the pantry- we keep it in an Organizer:
It’s important that the kids are helping out, as well, by packing their own lunches in the mornings. We just provide the right choices, so they can’t go wrong.
It all boils down to having the right choices, like picking a wireless service provider like Straight Talk Wireless to keep in close communication during the school year. With Straight Talk, you can choose from the latest phones on the best networks, all for less – including the Samsung Galaxy S8.
I never want to be without my phone when the kids are in school. (It never fails that at least once a month, we get a call that “Your child forgot their lunch today.” Yes… even packing it themselves doesn’t make them remember it every day. Using cell phones to stay connected is priceless… but an expensive wireless plan is one less item parents need to worry about.
Plus, Straight Talk offers nationwide coverage on America’s largest and most dependable networks. All of this is without a contract. With Straight Talk, there are no contracts, no credit checks and no mystery fees. You can get unlimited talk, text and the first 8GB of high-speed data then 2G* for $45.
