Pre-Made Granola Snack Bags

I've shared with you in the past how I make the whole week's worth of sandwiches on Sunday.  Here's another idea I had to make packing lunches (or just grabbing a snack) a bit easier, at the same time using up some partial bags in the pantry.

Here's what I had:
  • Some bulk granola
  • Some bulk raisins
  • a few handfuls of M&M's
I tossed a bit of each thing into some snack bags and made a trail mix type mixture.  

Now I'd be lying if I said these got completely gobbled up.  My girls, of course, picked the m&m's out, but they did munch on some of the other stuff as well, and my husband thought they were great.  He loves trail mixes, but they tend to be very costly!  Also, the bags are huge!  He will splurge on a bag, and munch on it for a few days, and then he says the stuff at the bottom tastes stale, so some usually gets wasted.

The baggies keep them sealed, so they don't go stale, and they are in individually sized portions.  They are also very handy to toss in a diaper bag.

I've also split up boxes of cherry tomatoes and bags of baby carrots in these little snack baggies to toss in lunch boxes.  It saves a ton of time.  What are some things you do to make packing lunches a breeze?
