Are you the Snack Queen?

If so, we need to talk! I'm always looking for good ideas that are also cost saving. And, I'm willing to are two of my favorites.
1) Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches...frozen! Yep, you can freeze these babies up to 3-weeks. I dress them up by taking my Magic Chef Pastry Cutter/Sealer and triming off the crusts. 
 Then, I cut them in half and pop them into zipper style sandwich bags. Then, several go into a freezer bag...and I grab one in the morning to put into Aidan's snack bag for school. The sandwich is all thawed out by snack time at school! And, she thinks she has something really special since it is round and without crusts!
I think a biscuit cutter would work too. Or, just trim the crusts off with a knife, and cut into halfs or quarters!
2) Muffins! These can also be frozen...just make ahead and you've got dessert with the PB&J!
So, what are your favorite tricks for snacks?
