Have you seen the following picture on your Pinterest page or your Facebook page? A Mason jar with a empty plastic container which is reused from a fruit cup or pudding. It is a genius idea really, and I was totally excited about it. The only problem is we recycle!

I already had tons of Mason jars, but I specifically went and bought several fruits cups so I could recreate these awesome snack containers. The problem is once the plastic containers were clean, my family kept throwing them in the recycling bin. I couldn’t keep them so I could even use them.
Then I found these great snack containers at Wal Mart for only $1.50. Here are 10 plus ideas for your lunch box for work or for the kids.
Prep 5 to 8 of these on a weekend or in the evening. In the morning when time is tight, grab quickly and throw into a lunch box or have a quick breakfast on the run. The added benefit is the cost of the these handy containers is cheap enough to work well with any budget.
