Things I Love on Tuesdays...packing lunches!

Lately, I have had some fun things come into my life that I have wanted to share.  So for a few weeks here I am going to share a post on Tuesdays showcasing a little item that I have come across and love. 

This first week I am going to showcase some lunch boxes that are AWESOME!  When I came across the website, http://www.easylunchboxes.com/ I knew that these were a hot item.  I emailed Kelly and asked her about her boxes and she stuck a set of the boxes and a case in the mail for me to try! 

 I am not in the lunch packing mode for the kids yet, but next year I will become an expert when Charley ventures off to all day first grade.  I do however, pack lunches these days for the boys and they love when they come in a fun box.  I also love to pack lunches when we go on adventures and I pride myself on having very little trash at the end of the picnic.  I also had a new years resolution to help pack Ed's lunch more often...not doing so well on that resolution lately.  Soon, honey, soon.

So this past week we journeyed to St. Paul to the Children's Museum and we brought our lunches.  I packed us each our own little tray.  They all three fit perfectly inside the lunch box that you can also buy on her site. 

The amount of food that you can fit into the compartments is plenty for a healthy sized lunch.  They are stronger than a "gladware" type container but probably not as durable as a "Tupperware."  But the price is incredible.  I have washed them in our dishwasher and they come out great!

After pulling them out at the Children's museum the boys sat with them on their laps, eating their lunch.  And the mom I was with noticed them...AND a stranger came right over and wanted to know where I got them.  They are that HOT! 

Visiting their site you can get incredible ideas on packing fun lunches.  GO CHECK IT OUT

And stay tuned...I plan to show off a few of my lunch creations and possibly hold a give away for a set of these awesome lunch containers! 

When you pack a lunch...what are some of your favorite items that you throw in?

These are so cool! I have to admit thought Puck LOVES to buy lunch at school and I have to support that because a: I hate packing lunch (including my own) and b: it's one less thing I have to do! Maybe if I get one for myself I'll pack more often instead of eating frozen food everyday!!

I pack my husbands lunch and Nora's lunch everyday (night before). My husband usually has 2 peanut butter & jelly sandwiches (one for breakfast, one for lunch), an apple, yogurt, and granola bar and water. Nora has 1/4 of a peanut butter & jelly (I know - only 1/4 of a sandwich!), a yogurt (or go-gurt), and crackers or strawberries/grapess. She doesn't eat much but I also think the lunch teachers make them try to finish their lunch before they can be excused. Those lunch containers would be great to have - can't wait to enter the giveaway if you have one!!! Jamie Trampe

What a great product! I love love love that you pack such nutritious lunches. I used to pack my dad a lunch for work when I was young, and I always made him a custom trailmix using different cereals, peanuts and pretzels.

We use the Ziploc version of these and the girls love them. We do cold chicken, hard boiled eggs, fruit, applesauce, cheese sticks, raisins- you name it, I've tried it :)
