Store a granola bar inside a glasses case

Karen, if I were smart like you, the contents of my purse might not be covered in granola dust.

I store my daughter's granola bars in a hard-sided glasses case in my diaper bag. They fit perfectly, they don't get crushed, they're easy to find and you can put the wrapper back in the case so crumbs don't fall into your diaper bag.

    I LOVE this. Our son calls the fruit bars I give him in the car flat bars because they have usually been squashed in my coat pocket or bag.

    GREAT tip! I’ve been stashing Kashi cereal bars for my daughter and for me (pregnant, sometimes needed a quick snack!) but they always get smashed. Love this tip! Thanks!

    This is so good! I am thinking I can put a baggy of fish crackers for my daughter’s snack for school in a glasses case too, so the crackers won’t get crushed in her backpack.

    Ha, I do this too! Although I do it with string cheese most often. I hate when it gets all crushed and squishy in my bag.

    I think I’m going to faint. WHY didn’t I think of this??? I’ve dug in my bag numerous times only to find crumbs.
