With back-to-school in full swing, so is packing lunch. Womp, womp. But it doesn't have to be that way! Make this important mid-day meal exciting again by making sure you are armed with our 8 essentials so you can win at packing lunch each day. Check 'em out!
8 ESSENTIAL TO WIN AT PACKING LUNCH
(1) Thermos Lunch Bag with Black and White Stripe Pattern
You gotta have a insulated cooler to keep foods fresh! But no need to shell out big bucks for a functional & affordable lunchbox. We love this simple black + white lunch sack!
(2) 1 Liter bkr Refillable Water Bottle
Staying hydrated isn't just something athletes need to do. Each day we should aim to drink ample fluids, about 13 cups a day for men, 9 cups a day for women, and 5-11 cups a day for children & teens. This bkr refillable water bottle is environmentally friendly and so stinking cute!
(3) up & up Portion Pack Bags
I love these bags! They're perfect for any & and all snacks or sides, plus make portioning out quantities super simple. Get you some!
(4) Icy Cools Reusable Ice Cubes
Instead of storing awkward, bulky ice packs in your lunch bag, keep everything cool with reusable ice cubes like these from the Container Store.
(5) Aladdin Classic Mason Salad Jar
Homemade salads have never been so stylish & simple. Layer your favorite salad in this non-glass to-go container and keep everything crisp & fresh by storing your salad dressing in the built-in dressing compartment!
(6) Stainless Steel Dipping Cups with Lids
These durable dippings cups are ideal for those delicious dips & spreads that you don't want to get all over your other food. Must have!
(7) Pyrex® Storage Plus® 14-pc Set
The truth is that not all tupperwares are created equal. And as many as I've tried over the years, they just don't get better than Pyrex. By an assortment of sizes and they'll keep for years. Years I tell you! They're great for storing meal prep, leftovers and reheating items.
(8) Oggi™ Acrylic Tumbler with Stainless Steel Liner and Acrylic Straw
Keeping drinks at their desired temp is critical to enjoyment so I love this acrylic/stainless steel tumbler combo to keep my beverages cool or hot, hot, hot.
