Organize your Yogurt

You probably never have this happen in your house - The Great and Terrible Yogurt Wars.

As in: "You've had more yogurts than me, this last one is mine"

But if you do, help is just a Sharpie pen away. Just write each child's initial on the lids of the yogurts. In my house the favorite flavors are Orange Creme, Lemon Burst, Key Lime Pie and the youngest one gets all the strawberry. They start out with equal amounts and know they can only take the ones with their initial on them.

Simple? Yes! and that's the beauty of it.

Lemon and Key Lime are the favorites around here too!

Mine, too, Cocoa!
Do NOT try that whipped chocolate flavor. My four year old loves it and if that isn't reason enough to avoid it, I don't know what is.

I love the strawberry. Fabulous organization! Let me know if you want me to add you to my list.

We do this at our house--especially with the bottled waters.

AND, the Wal Mart in my town has not had any Key Lime for over a month!

I've tried the whipped yogurts before and something about it doesn't seem right - it's like I'm eating cool whip right out of the container.

But chocolate? I may have to give it another try.
