Fashion . . . for Food!

As I mentioned a few months ago, in an effort to cut costs, I've kicked the eating out habit and stuck to brown baggin' my lunch to work. Doing the whole "eating in" thing at work is an art form. Its all about getting the appropriate mix of nutritious, delicious and filling items kept at the optimal temperature and eaten at the ideal time of the day. No easy task, believe me!

However, throw in a aesthetically pleasing tote to transport it all in and this isn't your grandmama's brown bag!

Anna Griffin offers cute reusable lunch totes in a variety of colors and patterns. Save the planet and increase the crave factor of an ordinary lunch all at once! Who needs to reuse those small bags collected from random malls stores to haul when you can lunch in style!

Etsy offers all sorts of eco-friendly retakes on that old zip-lock with their cloth sandwich bags. I could imagine sticking these handy little pouches right in with my laptop solo and heading to the office. Functionality meets fashion forward with the Aladdin Lunch and Go box, designed to be a grown up take on the kiddo box of yesteryear.

I couldn't help but mention this mini-lunch tin that I discovered on Amazon. It may be a little on the tween side but the "Cute but Psycho" emblazoned on the side is enough to make me decrease the portions in my lunch by half just to sit with that facing outward in our company break room!

Are you bringing lunch from home? What tote or tin works best for you?

Oh my goodness. That's so cute, I want to start packing a lunch, even though I don't have any good reason to.

I don't think I would spend $25 plus shipping for a lunch bag. I keep getting free plain bags as promotions, and I work from home. Go figure!

Learn Chinese said...

The best place to learn Chinese online is in China. However, we understand that it isn't always possible to move here to learn Chinese language. The next best thing is to study with our experienced teachers in a virtual classroom. Online students enjoy the same excellent way of mandarin online lessons and custom designed courseware that we provide for our face to face clients.
