Portion snacks before you indulge yourself so you’ll never have to say, “I can’t believe I ate that whole bag of cookies!”
It’s easy to keep reaching into a bag of chips or a package of chocolate chip cookies until there’s nothing left. And then you feel bad. Enjoy your snacks in moderation by measuring out just how much you’ll eat. When you buy a package of candies or cookies, place pre-approved (by you!) portions in small Ziploc bags. You’ll save money with this tip, too: buy healthy snacks like almonds, raisins and trail mix in the bulk section, then parcel them out into snack bags for snacking on the run, at the office, or at the gym.
