Sandwich bags, such an important part of the school day, is an upgrade from the time-old brown lunch bags! An economical and money saving snack bag, sandwich bags are the smallest kind of open plastic bags sold regularly (other than custom sizes). They come in very handy for snacks and sandwiches. Known for their fold-over top closure, sandwich bags have been around since the 1950’s. They are made of thin low density plastic materials and sold in dispenser boxes for easy household handling. So when you are thinking of packing up your children’s backpacks with snacks and lunches, think sandwich bags and save money.
Instead of buying individual packs of chips, pretzels and biscuits, consider buying a dispenser box of sandwich bags, along with some big bags of chips. You will repackage the snacks into several plastic sandwich bags, and get many more servings for your money. It will be much cheaper to send your child to school with a home-packaged sandwich bag of chips than with a small pre-packed snack bag. Along the same lines, prepare your child your homemade peanut butter & jelly sandwiches for lunch, pack them into sandwich bags and fold-over the top to close them. Your child will have a delicious lunch in school, prepared by his parent, neatly packed in a sandwich bag.
