When I bring something home from the store that has more than one serving to a box (snacks/cereals/etc.), I get out my zipper bags & measuring cups and pre-measure individual servings into bags. I keep the bags in the original box, so they're easy to grab, use AND stick to your portion control!
Not only does it make it a no-brainer when you're hungry, it oftentimes keeps you from overindulging, because you'd have to pull out a whole new bag to grab those "few extra handfuls" we're all so good at sneaking in. It keeps us accountable this way!
I purchased a few extra measure cup sets from the dollar store. I buy many of the frequently used products in large containers (oatmeal, cottage cheese, frozen fruit). I simply leave the appropriate servings size measure cup in the container for easy measuring and no need to wash after each use!
