Controlling the Cost of Snacking

For many people, including me, random compulsive snacking can add up! The cost often ends up being more than you wanted to pay.
Today I had some extra time on my hands and spent approximately 20 minutes making a snack drawer using a pile of snacks, snack bags, and garage sale pricing labels. I labeled each bag or bar with the appropriate POINTS value and put all the remaining boxes and bags of snacks out of my reach.
Not everything in the drawer is a filling food, but at least it's all portion-controlled.
In my snack drawer you will find:
Weight Watchers Bars
Pretzel Snacks
Quaker Delights Bars
Fiber Bars
Dark Chocolate covered Espresso Beans
Sugar Free Jelly Belly Beans
Quaker Delights Rice Snacks
What's in your drawer?
I'm off to family night at my mother's house! We'll see how I navigate that experience. I'm bringing a snack and a couple 4C's sugar free tea2go packets (I love the Red Peach Tea) because her cooking can often be delicious, yet disasterous.

I know I've said it before... but if I buy snacks... I eat snacks... If I don't buy snacks, I don't eat snacks... the only way for me to curb the snacking is by not buying the snacks. Then there's no temptation!

But I'm snacker. I have to eat snacks. Especially being hypoglycemic...I have to have snacks between meals.
