Long-time no see (from a lot of you)


Hello all!!!

I ran across a wonderful tip that I need to share and being the start of the school year it is at the perfect timing.  I know a lot of you use those freezable blue ice packs but what happens if you don’t have one and you need to keep your child’s lunch cold for the afternoon?



-New kitchen sponge

– Water

-Ziploc Bag

—-Take your sponge and fill it with water.  Once soaked, hold it up and let it drip out the excess water. (Don’t squeeze, just let it drip out)  Once the sponge isn’t dripping much put it in the ziploc and seal and place in the freezer until frozen. When ready to pack the lunch just take the frozen sponge ziploc out of the freezer and it is ready to be used just like blue ice.  As the water melts the sponge reabsorbs the water and no mess.

Love this tip!!

Hope everyone is doing well and I look forward to start posting again!!
