A glance at food prices quickly reveals that, pound for pound, snack foods are the most expensive items in the grocery store. So, what do you do if you want some fun and easy snacks to take to the beach, but you don't have a lot of money to spend? Make your own!
Start with cheap, refillable containers and pack them with bulk items like peanuts, candies or dried fruit. Grapes, cherries or carrot sticks are good choices, too. Pop your own popcorn for a cheap and tasty alternative to potato chips. Finish your picnic with homemade cookies and water in refillable water containers, and you will have everything you need for a fun and delicious snack without having spent a small fortune.
