crust-1

My kids and I both love Uncrustables.

Why?

Kids “They are good.”

Me “They are convenient.”

What do I not like about Uncrustables?

The price…they are VERY expensive (about .75 each).  You can get them a little cheaper if you buy them in bulk at Sams or Costco.

What are Uncrustables?

Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches they sell in the freezer section of the grocery store that have no crust and are sealed.  You can throw them frozen in your child’s lunch and they will be defrosted by lunch time (actually a lot sooner).

I saw on Pintrest that they sell a device that cuts off the edges and then has an inner square that will seal the sandwiches.

I can save money!

I decided to buy it because I knew I could make Uncrustables cheaper by using it!  I could also make other sandwiches to freeze (cheese, ham, etc).  You can get one on Amazon for about $10.00. They have several different ones to choose from. 

I went to Aldi and bought two loafs of bread (.99 each) and a peanut butter and jelly already mixed (1.79) which I loved! 

I made the sandwiches (I also made a few cheese and mayo ones too).  After making them, I put each in a sandwich Ziploc and threw them in the freezer.

The result?

They turned out really good and are A LOT cheaper.  The sandwiches ended up being about .21 each which is a lot cheaper than the .75 Uncrustable ones!!!!! 

If your kids each sandwhiches for lunch five days a week, you would spend about $180.00 a year buying just one of your children Uncrustables.  If you made your own knock off version, you would spend only $50.00.  That is a huge difference!!!!

My question for you is this:

Who thinks this gadget is awesome?
