I’m not sure if my family is terrified of the dreaded, “Did you eat all the crackers?” question or what, but they often leave just a tiny bit of food in the bottom of bags and boxes.   Maybe they are being nice and leaving some for the next person.   Maybe they are being lazy and don’t want to have to have to head to the trash.   Really, I have no clue!   But, I often find bags and boxes in the pantry with just a few left over.   Not quite enough for a filling snack, but not something you want to throw away.

Well, here’s how we turn those dwindling snacks into a new and exciting snack quickly.   Dump them all together.   Just take half full or mostly empty containers and mix them for a fun snack mix!
