The Breakfast Club

My next door neighbor and I have this great deal worked out. Whenever one of us buys something that our kids won't eat, we give it to the other.

This morning, for instance, I got a box of strawberry Go-tarts, a box of Kellogg's Yogos (the kids LOVED these) and some cream-cheese filled pretzels. Mmm. I gave her a box of cinnamon waffles and some frozen McDonald's style hashbrowns. Each of us were completely thrilled with this new acquisition.

It is a deal that works out well for us. We aren't wasting and we feel like we're getting a bargain by acquiring something else. I highly recommend an exchange like this if you ever find a willing neighbor.

    Icky go tarts. They taste like fig newtons. However, my kids lick the icing off and discard the rest.

    sounds like a great plan

    That is a great idea! :) Did the kiddos like the swapped items? Perhaps when ya'll go shopping you should just meet in the driveway and exchange things to begin with. hee-hee :)
