Fruit and Jello Snack Cups

Money Saving Tip of the Month (featured column)

Make your own disposable fruit cups and gelatin snack cups!

My kids are always asking for the packaged Jello and fruit cups that come in the little plastic containers from the store. Since they are not very cost effective, I bought some small plastic food storage cups (4-ounce size).

I then mix my Jello in a pitcher, pour it into each plastic cup, put the lid on, and place it in the refrigerator. I also buy large cans of diced fruit, or bags of frozen, and portion them into these cups as well.

Now, when I pack their lunches or snacks, they have a handy little cup to take to school, and it saves me quite a bit of money every month.

The kids also know to bring home their cups, so I don't have to worry about purchasing new ones every time!
