Better Than Sliced Bread

Posted Thursday, August 06, 2009

What is convenience worth?

There was a time when I would sacrifice my time, because it was cheaper. I didn't buy prepackaged snacks, because it was cheaper to buy it in bulk. I wouldn't buy pudding cups, because I could make it myself. Going out to eat killed me-How could I spend my grocery budget on ONE meal?

Well, times have changed!

I am the mother of four-count them-one, two, three, FOUR kids. Four. Let's kick it up a notch: three of those kids are ages five and under. My hands are full, and convenience is the new pink. I'm always looking for ways to save time. It's also a nice bonus if it helps to keep the drama at a minimum. And it's extra-extra special if it helps my little people develop some independence.

So-better than sliced bread: Kool-aid single serve packets.

I LOVE these things! I don't even look at the price when I put them in the cart. My kids all have their own water bottle with their name on it. When they need a drink, they can pick out a packet of THEIR CHOICE, and make their own kool-aid. It's so easy. They just tear off the top, pour the powder in the bottle, add water, and shake.

So easy! So convenient. Try it at your house.

As a mom to only one child, I couldnt imagine what it would be like to have FOUR! But I can relate to loving things that free up my time and less drama! I think that is an excellent idea! Thank you for sharing this great tip with us!

Great post! I have 2 girls ages 3 & 2 and they are both very independent! I love the convenience things that let them do it themselves. If I try, they get mad! Gotta love the independent woman!!!!!:)
