If you have kids you know you need to stock up on snacks. If you have boys you know you need to double the amount of snacks that you think would be enough. And if you have twin boys who are 10 you know you need to live next door to a Costco so you have a chance of eating something in your home! I try to make as many different things that I can in bulk, and freeze it all. Then my boys can heat them up and have a snack or they can pack it for school lunch.
