Wal-Mart's Commericals

Hey, have you caught Wal-Mart’s new “pack your lunch” commerical???? Save your money and skip the fast food chain….. I agree with Wal-Mart with that statement…..  And I have noticed they have said “under $3.”  So, I decided to take a look at how much my kids lunches cost me to make……

Menu:  Peanut Butter Sandwiches, Applesauce, Kool-aid, cookies…….

Peanut Butter Sandwiches:

2 slices of bread:  $.08

1 Tablespoon Peanut Butter:  $.004

Applesauce: 1/2 cup serving=$.18  (We purchase the jar… want to be green ya know)

Kool-aide (made at home)= 1 cup= $.01

Homemade Cookies= 2 cookies=$.015

So let’s see our total shall we…….

29 Cents!!!!!

Can’t beat that now can we????? So let’s say you eat that for lunch everyday for a month at work and school….. You would have spent only $6 for 5 lunches a week for an entire month!! Can’t even get one combo meal for that price at McDonald’s!!  Yippie!!

Isn’t it fun to add up how much things cost????  It is amazing how eye-opening it really is!!
