What is the best way to store peanut butter and jelly sandwiches in the refrigerator for a week?

I'm going to be helping out a single dad on Sundays to earn extra money and one of the chores to prepare the school lunches for his kids and store them in the refrigerator. He wants them fresh. What is the best way to make and store it, so that the ones they get on the fifth day are still good?

  • No - PBJ is GROSS if frozen. Does it have to be PBJ? I would suggest having baggies for celery and carrot sticks ready, maybe containers with crackers, and then pb & j in two compartments for PBJ cracker lunchable type things. (crackers could be NEXT to the fridge), and those tiny applesauce or fruit cups in the fridge.

  • my kiddos love the uncrustables...they're fairly cheap, so he could just get those (it takes 2 per day for my son)...or you can make your own uncrustables. just make sure you use freezer bags, not regular zipper bags.
