The Klip It Lunch Cube is a steal at only $5. I found mine at the Container Store this weekend. I love that it comes in a variety of colors. I bought 3. I have each one packed and ready to go for the morning. All I have to do is make the sandwiches.
Now, on to the positives to this cute little cube:
- It is plastic which I am not thrilled with, but at least the plastic is BPA free.
- This container is also safe to be placed in the freezer, dishwasher (top rack) and microwave.
- Don't forget the variety of colors helps to make sure each member of the family picks up the right lunch every day.
The Slimline Quaddie Lunch Box is also a great deal at only $10. This item was also found at the Container Store. It is a bit bigger than the Lunch Cube, so this time I only bought one. I really wanted pink, but settled for lime green encase any of the boys needed a larger lunch one day.
Here are the pros to this bigger lunch box:
- BPA free
- microwave and dishwasher safe
- holds more food (obviously)
- has a small water bottle and storage spot
- water bottle can be removed to allow for more food storage
- each compartment has an individual lid
- the bottom section is very large (It could hold a ton of salad.).
I think this would definitely be the better of the two choices if your kids are older. I debated on getting T Man the larger one just because it seems he is always hungry lately.
Laptop Lunches: We have this fantastic lunch box and it is wonderful. I love the little containers to separate all T Man's little goodies. I like that one of the containers has a lid. If I was to purchase it again, I would get the newer version that has one large and 2 small containers instead though. It is hard to put a sandwich in the medium size compartment... $25 for the Bento 2.0
* I found a Bento 2.0 on sale for $19 here.
Shop Green Life: Has two different lunch box systems for $30 a piece... the Go Green Lunch Box System is much like a Laptop Lunch Box except it does not have individual containers... the "laptop" has the containers built in
Yubo: what a fun way to pack a lunch...$30 for the entire lunch box system (lunchbox and containers)
*I love that you can change the face plate on the lunchbox as often as you would like. You can also personalize the lunchbox as well as have a family photo as the face plate. fun... fun... fun!
Goodbyn: this all in one system seems perfect... pack an entire lunch without any additional containers to wash... comes with an 8.5 ounce drink container...$30
*Love that they have a containers for younger children to decorate as silly monsters, crazy characters, etc. AND they have a container without the stickers and ears for those older kids that are just too cool for the fun.
Eco Lunch Boxes: these have got to be some of the cutest lunch sacks yet... little girls would love these... $50 gets the entire system... $35 gets just the sack and 3 matching napkins/placemats
Planet Box: stainless steel lunch tray with magnetic interchangeable designs... $15 for tray... $50 for tray and 2 food containers... $60 for a lunch bag, tray, and 2 food containers
*I like that you can change the magnetic design. For $4, you can purchase an additional set of designs and use the same lunch box for both a boy and a girl.
Easy Lunch Boxes: for under $15 you get 4 eco friendly plastic lunch containers... one large compartment and two smaller ones... for an additional $8 you can purchase a lunch bag
*The price is right on this lunch box system. With 4 containers, you can have one in the wash and pack one of the leftovers or you can feed multiple kids. The different colored lids makes differentiating between lunches a breeze.
Lunch Sense: big enough to hold a six pack of canned drinks...medium size lunch box...$40... contains: (1) 19 ounce food container, (2) 6 ounce containers, a 1 ounce container (great for dips), an 8 ounce drink bottle, an ice pack, and the carrying bag
*I love that the carrying bag actually unfolds to make the perfect place mat. No more worrying about where your child will lay down the cheese stick while taking a drink.
Go Green in Stages: buy the pieces separately or as an entire lunch system... compac or full size...$60 for a compac square container lunch system
*Love the square stainless steel containers and the addition of a hot thermos.
Kids Konserve: Buy the entire lunch ensemble in one place... lunch bag, napkin, water bottle, containers, baggies, etc... $45
*Love that this is easy to open and close for the kidlets and it comes as a complete set.
Lunch Bots: stainless steel containers from $13- $17
Litter Free Lunch: purchase stainless steel lunch bot containers, stainless steel water bottles, and more
*I love the napkins, but not the price. You can get 12 white cloth napkins at Target for $10... a much better deal.
One Small Step: tons of reusable lunchware from various companies... sets made up of some of the best products on the market sold together to give you a entire waste free lunch experience
Reusable Bags: has tons of different manufacturers in one location
*One lunchbox system I found that was not previously listed and is reasonably priced happens to be the Light My Fire Meal Kit...$20
Klean Kanteen: stainless steel drink containers
Bento Lunch Boxes sold by amazon
Lunchville: different systems to choose from
*I loved that they had some eco-friendly choices for mom. There are several really cool purse-like bags to choose from. I think I will be adding one of these to my wish list.
