With the rising cost of food lately, it has left me getting creative for snacks, especially after school. I usually alocate a certain amount of money weekly for meat, dairy, drinks, snacks etc...

Buying snacks can take a huge hit on any budget, so here are a few of my kids favorites that are actually quite inexpensive, and most of these items go on sale frequently.

Crackers and butter or flavored cream cheese. (Any saltine cracker)

Pretzel sticks dipped in mustard- flavored mustard or original

Carrot sticks dipped in ranch

Pretzel sticks dipped in ranch

Peanut butter toast

Apples dipped in peanut butter

Celery dipped in peanut butter.

Anything that has a "dip" is always a hit. There you have it, after the boxed items are gone for the week, these staples come in handy for snacks.

Does anyone else have any frugal snacks you would like to share?
