Save on Trail Mix

My husband loves trail mix, but I get concerned when he eats a half a bag while watching a game. I decided to make my own.

There are three levels to saving money on Trail mix:

  1. Buy a bag and put ¼ a cup in snack size Ziploc bags. It will go further because you will not mindlessly eat several servings while watching TV.
  2. Make your own mix and put it in Ziploc bags. The beauty of making your own mix is you can put in it only the ingredients you like. You can also use unsalted nuts.
  3. Buy peanuts, shell peanuts. Substitute chocolate chips for the M & M’s.

Trail Mix

1 Jar Unsalted Peanuts

½ Can Unsalted Cashews

½ Can Unsalted Almonds

½ Cup Raisins

½ bag M & M’s or Chocolate Chips

1/8 Cup Sunflower Kernels

Mix together. Put ¼ cup mixture in each snack size Ziploc bag.

Saving money is not an all or nothing proposition. Choose whatever level fits you.
