The school year will be starting back again before we know it. My daughter attends extended school year, since it helps her stay on track and avoid readjustment which can be tough for kids with autism. Hence, I am packing her lunches (more like a collection of snacks throughout the year). I recently had the opportunity to try out a new product which makes packing her lunches oh so much easier.
You see, this is the jumble of food storage containers I am accustomed to. Some of the pieces don’t even have matches. Trying to grab a matching container and lid for each of her items can be a royal pain in the backside, especially on the mornings we are pressed for time. Since mommy is notoriously disorganized, that is not an infrequent event.
Dixie Quicktakes® (currently only available through Amazon), solve the lid matching dilemma. The lids are conveniently attached. No more searching. The containers are also dishwasher safe, so if you want to reuse them it is not a problem, yet they are recyclable and inexpensive enough to toss out daily if need be.
BPA free Quicktakes® also stack neatly, making them easy to pack in a lunch bag, as well as storing in the kitchen. Being completely clear, they are easy for my daughter to see exactly what is in the containers when showing her teacher or assistant what she wants to eat, while at school. They also seem to stay closed and seal well, so popped off lids should not be an issue… spillage at the bottom of her lunch bag is never a good thing.
Not Just for Lunches
Not only are Dixie Quicktakes® super convenient for packing my daughter’s lunches, but they are also terrific for sending leftovers home with friends. Rather than losing a more costly storage container, I can just tell them it is semi-disposable, and to either toss it or reuse it a few time… but I don’t want it back.
These containers are also great for storing all those little craft supplies are kids seem to be hydroponically growing somewhere we don’t know about: markers, crayons, stickers, glue sticks , tubes of glitter, plastic googley eyes…etc., etc. etc. The stacking ability is extra helpful here.
Dixie Quicktakes® are available in a handy box of 25 on Amazon (10 larger container & 15 smaller ones). I’ve already shared my thoughts on the product, but feel free to check out what others are saying in the Amazon Reviews section, and check out this video featuring Quicktakes® while you are at it.
You just may find yourself packing a larger variety of healthy snacks for the kids, if the struggles of finding containers are gone, sograb a box or two of Dixie Quicktakes® to get the school lunches off to an easy start this year…
