Works For Me Wednesday

I've been thinking about works-for-me Wednesday all week! We always have a problem with the snacks in the diaper bag. They sink to the bottom, get smushed, get stale, or get forgotten. And with an active year-old baby, snacks are a must for any outing. We recently switched Wendy from formula to whole milk. That meant we didn't need the travel formula dispenser. I was about to put it away when I had a great idea - fill it with snacks!

This is our new "snack" dispenser! It's a Sassy product, and I think I paid maybe $5 for it. It's got 4 compartments and a turning lid with a spout. If you don't have one that you used for formula, it's worth buying one for snacks. In ours I currently have Goldfish, Fruity Cheerios, freeze-dried sweet corn and freeze-dried strawberries and bananas.

To our JC friends - we won't be making it for the church Homecoming after all! We're planning to visit the last weekend in October instead. Let me know if anyone is willing to host us! :-)

Fantastic container--I'll have to look for it! We've been stumbling along with ziploc baggies--would you like some Goldfish crumbs, Sunshine? No? Can't imagine why not! Thanks for the tip!

Great idea ~

They also sell disposable plastic containers at Walmart for snacks, too. Of course, I reuse.
