“Heres how we stretch our dollar!” TikToker robinmarshall2020 captioned the video.

The 29-second clip shows the mom opening a big container of popcorn before panning over to some smaller bags.

“Wanna know how to not waste big bags of snacks or worry about somebody leaving them open for them to get stale in the cabinet?” she said.

“Get little snack bags. I got these from Aldi’s for a couple bucks.”

The TikToker said that she portions out the snacks in cheap plastic bags so everyone can grab one for about two weeks.

“And nothing goes bad!,” she said.

This comes as another mom has been praised for her snack timer hack which stops kids from constantly asking for food.

Jodie Keith, who is from the UK, took to TikTok and shared a short video that shows a sticky yellow note with the time 4.30 written on it, which is the ‘allowed’ snack time.

She then places it directly above the digital clock in the oven.

In the clip, the mum-of-two explains: “Mum tip – if your kid doesn’t stop nagging you for a snack all the time, then make a snack timer.”

She continues: “Write the time down, stick it next to a clock they can see, and then my son just comes and goes to see if the numbers match.”

It’s great for number recognition and understanding the value of time, too.”

Jodie captioned the post: “We call it the ‘ice cream timer.’”

The post has since garnered over 1.1 million views and has been inundated with comments from grateful parents up and down the country.

“Love this idea,” praised one.

A second enthused: “What a fab idea! Thank you.”

A third noted: “Adds independence too.”

Meanwhile, another added: “And if clock watching isn’t for your kid (mine would obsess rather than play) then egg timers, the ones you turn, also work as a visual aid too.”

A further quipped: “I’m an adult and i need this…”

And elsewhere, one more social media user suggested: “We put the fruit basket in a kid-friendly place and they could help themselves whenever. They would get bigger carbs/proteins at snack time still.”
