    So, should I put the mayonnaise and lettuce in between the peanut butter to keep it from getting soggy?

    1. dadcamp says:

      Peanut Butter isnt allowed in many schools. That’s an eat-at-home sandwich :)

  2. Alix says:

    LOVE the cheese idea!

  3. Danielle says:

    I ALWAYS keep my sandwich ingredients seperate when I brown bag it. Just can’t eat a soggy sandwich. Yuck.

  4. katie says:

    Soggy sandwiches are THE WORST. Also, I love the meat trick. Such a good idea as naked bread is almost as bad as soggy bread.
