In hopes of tackling our back to school lists slowly..... I'm going to start with brainstorming LUNCHBOXES!
"What's there to think about?!", you say...... yes, I do realize you can snag a lunchbox at most stores, but I like to cause myself as much stress as possible ;) Well, not intentionally mind you.....
Last year the boys had Laptop Lunchboxes which were good, but I'd really like to see what all my options are before plunking down money on anything.
So let's see what we can dig up.................OH and let me preface this by saying that I'm really into the bento style lunch kits, i find they make it really easy to come up with well balanced lunches.
(the one thing i dislike about the laptop lunches is the smell of the water bottles. they have SUCH a strong plastic/toxic odor that washing [a lot] never got rid of.... )
(i have a set of the little tins, which i really like, but ordered a set of the reusable sandwich wrappers and was completely PUT OFF by the plastic smell of them.... I have yet to use them because of that....)
Lunchville sells a variety of lunchbox ware. I'm really digging these BUILT bags to put lunches in!
