I love peanut butter & jelly sandwiches and so do my kids. I also love the store bought version of Smucker’s uncrustables. The kids even get peanut butter & jelly a few times a week for lunch. I don’t, however, like the price. A 4 count box of Smucker’s Uncrustables runs about $4 at my local grocery store. That’s a $1 a sandwich! I have three kids and if they each take a peanut butter and jelly sandwich every day for school lunch, that’s $15 a week and $540 a school year! I started thinking and, I could make them for pennies, and so I did. The only thing I needed was this handy Wonderbread Sandwich Sealer. It’s essential for making your own uncrustable sandwiches and saving yourself some money.

I took a minute to break down the cost:

  • 1 loaf of bread costs about $1.25
  • 16 oz jar of peanut butter runs about $2.29 at Aldi or $2.56 at Walmart
  • We make our own strawberry and raspberry jam so I didn’t take the price of fresh berries into account, but I’m positive my price of homemade jam could rival store bought any day.

So, take 20 minutes and make up a few loaves of bread into homemade uncrustable sandwiches and make your morning lunch packing sessions a lot easier.
