Keeping snacks off the minivan floor

Labor Day is nearly here and it’s one of the biggest driving days of the year. The entire holiday weekend sees families packing their cars, SUVs, and minivans full of snacks, toys, electronics, and luggage as they head off to give summer one final hurrah.

To get where we want to go in a reasonable amount of time and to make the trip a bit more fun, we usually bring along a selection of snacks to keep us on the road and to help us from having those hangry kid meltdowns from the back seats. Unfortunately, and far too often, by the time we get back home from the trip, that once nice gray carpet has taken on the color of nacho cheese flavor dusted chocolate chip cookies.

With a little preparation, however, it’s not that hard to keep things from getting messy once the snacks are brought out. For kids, the E-Z Travel Lap Tray gives them a great surface for snacking and helps to keep snacks from rolling around and finding their way under seats and smashed into the floor. For those passing snacks around, the Slide N Save Reusable Bags are much better than plastic baggies or plastic bins. Easy to pass around, easy to reseal, and able to stand up on their own, the Slide N Save Reusable Bags work great for small dry snacks, fruit, vegetables, and homemade snack mixes. Not only will they help prevent spills, they also keep your snacks fresh and organized.

Instead of looking down to see a handful of chocolate malted milk balls rolling up and under your pedals as you drive, check out our store and plan on keeping things a bit more tidy as you experience summer’s last great weekend.

Save Money, Time, and the Environment with One Product

It’s rare that convenience, conservation, and money saving all come together at once and we’re often forced into choosing only one or two of the three. As parents, all three things are important to us, so it’s great when a product comes along that allows us to save time, money, and the environment all at once.

Our Slide N Save Reusable Bags are a product that our customers are putting to use in many ways. Made out of a BPA-free and durable silicone, these bags are fit for daily use for packing food on the go, storing food in the fridge, or even for heating up food in the microwave. Unlike plastic bags, which need to be thrown out after a single use, the Slide N Save Reusable Bags are dishwasher safe and can be used over and over again.

With school starting soon, these silicone bags are a fantastic alternative to using plastic for school lunches. Rather than sending hundreds of bags to the landfill, the Slide N Save bags will dramatically reduce your impact on the environment across the school year.

For parents that pack lunches to work, especially food that needs to be heated up, nothing is easier than using the Slide N Save Reusable Bags. Food can be heated up and eaten directly from the bag, so they work great for all kinds of food, even pastas, rice, or soups. The bags also stand up on their own when filled with food, for added usability and convenience.

Also, unlike reusable plastic containers, you won’t be forced to find lids, worry about food staining the container in the microwave, or the container melting when washed in the dishwasher. The Slide N Seal Reusable Bags are a huge improvement over both single use and reusable plastic for all kinds of food storage and packing.

The Slide N Seal Reusable Bags come in two different sizes, so check out the store to see what sizes would be most useful for you and your family. It’s time to ditch plastic for the good of the environment, the good of your budget, and for your added convenience.

Packing Lunch for Work Made Easy

One of the best ways to save money while eating healthier is to pack your own lunch rather than eating out during the work day. It’s estimated that one person can save, on average, about $1500 per year by packing their own lunch during the work week. But let’s be honest, far too often we trade away money saving opportunities for a bit of convenience.

When it comes to packing a lunch, it’s much more than just making food. You end up having to juggle several different sizes of plastic tubs while trying to keep your calm as the last lid you need seems to have grown legs and escaped during the night. After finally finding that lid, you notice that you’re out of plastic bags. At this point you throw your hands up and decide that you can squeeze in a quick trip through the fast food drive-through. You’ll try again tomorrow. Maybe.

We know it doesn’t need to be so hard to get lunch made, packed, and sent along to work or school. Whether you’re making something fresh or you’re packing leftovers from the previous day’s meal, our Silicone Stretch-N-Seal lids and our Slide N Save Reusable Bags make it as easy as it should be.

With the Silicone Stretch-N-Seal Lids, you can use bowls, cans, plastic containers, cups, or just about anything else to store your food and take it along without having to dig around for the perfect lid size to match. It takes seconds to have your food ready to go, and you’re not left with the lid and container juggler act.

With the Slide N Save Reusable Bags, you have the perfect bag for pasta, fresh vegetables, fruit, dry foods, snacks, and even soup. You can heat your meal up right in the bag, making it easy to prepare your food at work. Unlike sandwich bags, these won’t leak, are durable enough to throw into a backpack or messenger bag, and are 100% microwave safe. The Slide N Save Reusable Bags are also dishwasher safe.

Not only will both of these products help you simplify the lunch packing process, you’ll also reduce the amount of plastic bags you use. We hope that we can help you simplify your lunch routines while making it easier to eat healthier while saving money. Check out the store to see our current deals and offers.
