But there are quite a few of us whose kids go to school year round, like Lily Bird.
Some of you may have kids going to day camps where a packed lunch is required.
And don't forget about family picnics!
So the bottom line is there still may be occasion for food to be packed up and transported somewhere.
I don't know about you but I get stuck in a rut and end up sending the same food week after week. Of course, Lily Bird doesn't mind all that much. I think the girl could eat buttered noodles every single day. But I'm hoping to add a little more variety to her diet.
I'm also trying to be a little earth-friendly and cut down on my use of baggies and plastic wrap. But I don't want to break the bank on expensive bento-type lunch boxes.
I recently found what I think is the greatest lunchbox system ever. It works great, keeps food cool, and best of all - it's inexpensive!
It's called Easy Lunchboxes and you can check it out here.
I have eight of the containers and one cooler bag.
If I want to send something warm in Lily's lunch, I just stick a thermos in the cooler bag, too.
Now, for some good ideas on what to pack in that lunchbox, click here.
Have some fun with lunch!
See you Thursday!
