Hey, do you ever go into your pantry looking for a granola bar (or in my case some chocolate) and reach for the box of granola bars and find it empty? This is when I would start yelling "Who put an empty granola bar box back into the pantry!?!?" And the answer would inevitably be "I don't know" (BTW, there is an invisible being living in our house named "I don't know". He is very very naughty. I can't see him but my kids can since they always seem to blame him when something is lost, broken, stained, spilled, or when I find an empty box in the pantry. If you know how I can rid myself of this menace, please let me know.)
Anyway, my solution to the empty box problem is to have a Treat Box. When I come home from the grocery store, I empty any individually wrapped treats into the Treat Box and then recycle the empty box right away. This way the kids can reach into the box and get a treat, and I don't have to mess with an empty box when I have a craving for a granola bar, or say some chocolate.
