Giveaway: "Cool in School" Prize PackIt’s only a matter of days now before the kids start back to school … which means it’s only a matter of days before you have to start packing lunches again! This semester, don’t mess around with drippy, bulky ice packs to keep your kids’ food cool – just put a tube of Yoplait Go-Gurt inside.

According to the manufacturers of Go-Gurt, this portable yogurt-in-a-tube is specially made to freeze and thaw, which makes it an easy alternative to ice packs. Simply put a Go-Gurt in the freezer the night before school, then pop it into the lunchbox right before your child leaves. Voila – instant cool, and they can throw away the Go-Gurt tube at the end of lunch.

In honor of this “cool” innovation, Yoplait and MyBlogSpark are offering a “Keeping Cool in School” prize pack to one lucky Fort Worth on the Cheap reader. The prize pack consists of an insulated lunch tote, a mini water bottle, sandwich keeper, a pen fan (yes, a pen with a fan on it) and a few school supplies. They’ll also receive a coupon for a free package of Go-Gurt.

To enter, leave a comment on this post with a creative school lunch idea. You can get up to 2 extra entries by doing the following:
1. “Like” Fort Worth on the Cheap on Facebook. If you are already a “liker,” just leave a separate comment saying so.
2. Tweet this on Twitter: “Win a back-to-school prize pack from @fwcheap!” – then leave another comment with a link to the tweet.

I’ll draw for the winner on Aug. 24 at 12 p.m. and notify them shortly thereafter. You must be a Texas resident to enter.

Good luck! If you can’t wait until the contest is over to try the yogurt, visit to download a coupon for 75 cents off 2 packs of Go-Gurt.
