Well, it’s the end of August. Not sure how that happened, but summer has packed her proverbial backpack and the school bell is ringing. I hope the kids enjoyed their summer because the name of the game around here has been PREP! 

I went to Kroger to purchase the new Ziploc® brandbags with Easy Open Tabs. For my needs, I picked them up in snack, sandwich, storage and freezer sizes and Ziploc® brand containerswith One Press Seal, which are perfect for on-the-go travel.

With Ziploc® brand bags with Easy Open Tabs on hand, we were about to tackle the trifecta of prep!

Our schools participate in the Box Tops for Education Program which is AMAZING! I collect the box tops all year long so we can turn them in multiple times throughout the school year. Did you know Box Tops are available on the Ziploc® brand boxes? Holla! Bonus!

I let the girls decorate their own Ziploc® brand Storage bag with Easy Open Tabs to collect Box Tops in and we put them on the fridge for easy access. Now, once we clip a Box Top out, we can store it right away!


We have five people in the house and a lot of the time, it's more cost-effective to buy a large package of meat and split it up. It’s nice to have weekly dinners planned out so I can prep the meat on Sunday, freezing what I’ll use at a later time in the Ziploc® brand Freezer bags with Easy Open Tabs.


It's always easier to let the kids just grab a healthy snack when they want one versus having to prepare it for them at that moment. We like to keep individual Ziploc® brand Snack bags with Easy Open Tabs in the fridge ready for them to pull one out when the mood strikes.

I'm always looking for easy recipes that can be prepped ahead of time and put together quickly for dinner. These chicken kabobs are super easy and can be adapted with different flavors for different people.


Cube chicken
Add chicken to Ziploc® Storage bags with Easy Open Tabs

Cooking and crafting with Ziploc® brand bags with Easy Open Tabs was so easy. My five year old loves how she doesn’t have to struggle to open the bags anymore! And, there are so many cute ideas on the Ziploc® brand Back toSchool website so you should definitely check that out!
