Simple Snack: Apple Sandwiches

Apple sandwiches snack idea

A quick and simple snack idea the whole family will love!

Summer calls for delicious, simple snacks. However, I’m definitely not opposed to simple snacks all year round. After all, simple is one of my meal prep mottos. If I think it’s going to take too much time or require too many ingredients I don’t have on hand, I move on. Are you the same? Snacks should require very little effort, but lots of flavor! 😀

These apple sandwiches fall under the category of simple, delicious and budget-friendly. They’re a hit with both of my daughters and my husband and I. Though for the girls, I just do one slice of apple with the peanut butter and granola on top to make an open face sandwich. That way their little mouths can get a good bite!

While we use peanut butter, I think these would be delicious with WowButter, almond butter, apple butter or any kind of nut butter!  As for the granola, I like to always have a batch of this homemade granola on hand. But store bought is delicious too. For the apple corer, I really like this Cuisipro apple corer.

Here’s how to make Apple Sandwiches:

Apple Sandwiches
Ingredients
  • 2 Apples
  • 2-3 tbsp Peanut Butter or peanut butter alternative
  • 3 tbsp Granola
  • handful Raisins
Instructions
  1. Remove cores from apples and cut into 1/4-1/2" thick slices
  2. Spread apple slice with peanut butter.
  3. Top with granola and raisins.
  4. Place another apple slice on top and gently press together.
  5. Repeat with remaining apple slices.

3 Easy Ways to Save on Baby Stuff

How to save on baby stuff

Are you looking for ways to save on baby stuff? If you’re like most parents, it’s likely that you are!

Here are 3 easy ways to save money on items for your new baby:

Save on baby stuff

Buy Used

Purchase used for as many baby items as you can.

You can find fantastic bargains on clothing, toys and even strollers and play pens at yard sales and thrift stores. Facebook marketplace is another great resource for used goods and the way I find most of my used purchases.

The only items you may not want to buy used are a car seat and crib. Those are things you want to invest some money in, since they will be used heavily and safety is a priority.

Borrow

Do you know someone with kids? If so, there’s a good chance they have baby items that they no longer need! Ask if you can borrow those items until your child(ren) no longer need them.

Great items to borrow include play mats, change tables, bassinet, bouncy seat and crib mobile.

Be sure to pay it forward the next time a friend or family member needs baby items!

 If you're like most parents, it's likely that you are wanting to save on baby stuff! Here are 3 easy ways to save money on items for your new baby.

Buy in Bulk

When it comes to things like diapers, wipes and formula, a great way to save is to purchase these items in bulk.

Consider shopping at a wholesale store, such as Costco, to pick up these items.

In addition, watch the sales at your regular grocery and drug stores. There are always coupons available for baby items and when matched with a sale, you can often get these necessities inexpensively.

These are 3 simple ways that you can save money on baby items.

Don’t believe the myth that babies cost you thousands of dollars every year. By being frugal with your purchases, you can easily save quite a bit of cash on the things you need to buy for your child.

I’d love to hear your tips for saving on baby stuff! Let us know in the comments below.

Well, I didn’t intentionally mean to be absent for so long! Every Saturday, I would think to myself, “I should sit down and write this week’s Links Worth Sharing post.” And well, I kept getting distracted with other life stuff.

But, here I am, on a Sunday, getting my act together before all chaos sets loose. We’re embarking on another camping trip later this morning, so my morning is going to be full of food prep and trying to pack a lot of stuff into a small space. It’s all just so thrilling though, to leave the everyday, mundane behind for a few days!

How has your summer been? Have you discovered something new and fun that your family enjoys?

Anyways, here are the interesting links I came across on my travels around the web this week!  Enjoy and have a great weekend!
