Lunch Made Easy

I'm hoping it's at least lunch made easier.

I was reading Becky Higgins' blog the other day and she shared a brilliant idea on how she makes packing school lunches super easy.  (Scroll down to #9.)  This brilliant idea inspired me to do something similar.
Lunch Made Easy
I wish I had a drawer available but a shelf in the pantry will have to do.  I may need to add another bin.  On the bright side I did have to clean the shelf before putting the lunch items in the pantry.  (I hate to admit it, but I've not yet organized the pantry.  It's actually a little scary in there.  I had to throw out several things that were past the expiration date.  Yikes.)  Wednesday night  I will bag some chips and pretzels for the kids to choose from too.  

Now I just need to come up with a way to keep the kids from grabbing snacks from this shelf.  I'm thinking a loud recording hooked up to a motion detector warning them of the possible punishment they will receive for taking lunch items for snacks.  Or how about a laser grid that can only be turned off with a code that only Mickey and I would know?  Can anyone hook that up for me?

The laser grid would be extra cool.
