A SAVVY mum has shared her time-saving tip for packing lunch boxes each morning by creating a ‘grab-n-go’ station, and she’s been hailed as a genius.
The mum needed a storage solution as she’s short of cupboard space in her kitchen, so she decided to create a snack stop in her dining room.
The single mum re-purposed a storage container and filled it with lunch box treats which wouldn’t fit in her kitchen – assuring fellow parents she also packs some healthy food.
The mum, who has an eight-year-old son, says the ‘grab-n-go’ method works perfectly for them, as she shared a snap of her treat station.
Posting to Facebook group, TheALDINerd.com Community, she said: “Some people probably saw the perfect addition to their kids room.
“Not me, I saw the perfect solution for my kids school snacks.
You have to be creative when you have a small house
“I’m a single mom and the grab-n-go method is the best for us.
“Don’t worry, there’s plenty of fruits, veggies and yogurt in the fridge. My house is small and I am very limited with cabinet space.
“Everything fits perfect and It looks way better than I thought it would, it fits nearly perfect along this small wall in my dining room.
“You have to be creative when you have a small house.”
Her brilliant idea has racked up a whopping 42,000 likes, as fellow mums praised her lunch box hack, although some admitted the treats wouldn’t last long in their house.
One mum said: “I love this idea but my kids would just sneak all the food in a day."
Agreeing, this mum added: “My kid would eat everything in one day.”
A third raved: “Dang I absolutely never would've thought of that but it's a fantastic idea and space saver to be organized!”
Another wrote: “I think this is FANTASTIC!!! Good thinking momma!!!”
While this parent commented: “That is such an awesome idea!!!”
And this mum hit back at haters who said she used too much plastic in her four-week meal prep.
Meanwhile this mum was slammed for putting skewers in her son's lunchbox as other parents thought they're too dangerous.
Plus this mum hit back after being lunchbox shamed for prepping her five-year-old daughter’s meals days in advance.
