I would love to start featuring some do it yourself type posts. If you have one to share I would greatly appreciate it! E-mail Shana mymemphismommy@gmail.com.

Forget about paying big bucks for ice packs ever again. I have them in several sizes and types for use with food for lunches and for my aches, pains and headaches. It is pretty easy to do and anyone with a Ziploc Bag and some cheap dish soap can make them by the dozens if you like. You could even use a character or decorative one for the kiddos.
Make it Yourself Ice Pack Recipe

1. Select Ziploc Bag size of Choice (double or triple bag to protect against leaks)
2. LOTS of cheap Dish Soap
3. Load up the ZipLoc about 1/2 – 3/4 full. Close, rebag a couple of times squishing out the air each time and freeze.

Being frugal, you can do the same thing with Ziploc Containers for your food. Just fill a Ziploc bag pretty full and fit into a Ziploc Container. You could seal shut with a few drops of Super Glue to ensure no leakage.
