Works for me Wednesday~Hidden Stash

This seemed the perfect tip for today's

The way to keep your "stash" hidden

A mentor mom of mine once shared this tip with me. She used this idea when her kids were small, and though I haven't had to use it yet, I know that someday I will!

There are four simple steps to keeping your goodies hidden from the family, (even your hubby, if you so choose!)

Step 1: At the grocery store purchase yourself a sweet treat, and a bag of frozen veggies.

Step 2: Fix the frozen veggie for dinner that night, setting aside the bag (keeping the sweet treat hidden away in the mean time of course.)

Step 3: After the kids have gone to bed place the sweet treat inside the frozen veggies bag and close with a twist tie.

Step 4: Place your hidden stash in the freezer where kids and husbands alike will certainly not rummage through frozen veggies!

That is so great.

However, please help, how do I get past the bionic sense of smell that 2 of my children have? The can detect chocolate on my breath at 10 feet.

I know right Susan? I finished scarfing my "snack" before the kids got up and my daughter sat on my lap and said ~sniff, sniff~ "Do I smell chocolate?" So of course I answered coyly "What? Chocolate? If I had chocolate, wouldn't I share with you?" She bought it, but she was only three at the time!
Maybe breath mints? or there's always good ole' Listerine! Thanks for stopping by!

I have heard of other moms doing this... It takes smarts to survive the world of kids and chocolate at once!

Adorable blog you have here, Amy. I have a friend that is very into retro and I am sure she would love it here as well.

Happy Friday!

That is such a great idea!! I'm going to definitely have to try it. (That, or hide your chocolate where ever you keep cleaning supplies!)
