I'm an admitted snacker. Before I started pre-planning my meals, I would snack on anything I thought was 'healthy'. I began constantly craving them, so when I started planning my meals, I added in 3 pre-planned snacks at 100cal a piece. Try Pita Bites with blueberries or a sliced apple with a tbsp of peanut butter. It fills you up, has a lot of fiber, potassium, protein, and vitamin C. Pre-planning snacks felt less restrictive, and I don't regret it at the end of the day. :^)

I'm a night time, on the couch, snacker. I've learned that if I can keep my hands busy by crochetting (or knitting!) while watching TV that I am less likely to snack. Not only am I eating less but I have a cute blanket to boot!
I'm a night time snacker, especially if I didn't eat right such as skipping or eating a very small breakfast. I started brushing my teeth after dinner because the clean feeling helps reduce the munchy cravings and I'm usually too lazy to want to have to brush my teeth again just for a few bites.
