Wow! Lots of great information. I especially found the lunch lessons article helpful. My oldest starts first grade in a week and a half and I am scrambling trying to come up with healthy lunch ideas for him! Ann had some good ideas. Unfortunately my son is a pretty picky eater so I will probably rely on sandwiches made with whole grain bread, homemade mac and cheese made with whole wheat pasta, baby carrots, and apple slices a lot. I do agree with her that investing in some nice containers and a thermos is a good idea. We bought him a thermos last year and we used it nearly every other day. A sandwich container is great also because you don't have to buy sandwich bags and the sandwich won't get smushed before he eats it!

Why aren't coupons from August/September with the expiration date of 9/30/12 available to print, since the store says they don't have anymore coupons and will not honor the coupon savings.

@DONNA - Since this blog post is a bit older, some of the links might have changed to access our coupons. If you are looking specifically for the Whole Deal coupons, you can find them available to print at http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/coupons. A lot of these coupons are valid until 11/30/12 so feel free to let me know if these were not the coupons you were looking for.
