Does the cost of school lunches have you panicked?! Learn how to save 435 dollars a year simply by changing one thing!

Did you know that if you switched away from using disposable lunch-ware, such as plastic baggies and paper napkins, that you could save about $435 a year? Yep, our friends at ECOlunchbox did a study in 2009, that calculated the savings for a family that had two kids and one adult packing lunch five times a week.

At Abe’s Market they are focused on natural products that benefit the environment and your pocket book! They have a “soup-to-nuts” lunch-ware line that includes super cute bentos, sandwich boxes, snack containers, lunch bags and more, all of which are plastic-free and waste-free and that help you and your family avoid health risks associated with vinyl, plastic, lead and aluminum.

Who am I? Is it weird that the first thing that comes to my mind is Happy? No, I don’t believe I am one of the Seven Dwarfs, although happy is better than being Sneezy! After having my two children Kaphen (5), and Kyler (3), I lost myself somewhere between the diapers, parenting, and up all-nighters.
