Review/Giveaway- EasyLunchboxes Lunchbox/Bento Box Packable Lunch System- Great for Back to School!

I always bring my lunch to work with me each day. Number one, it save a lot of money. Number two, it is just plain healthier than eating fast-food each day. One thing I hate is using brown paper bags to pack my lunch. It's a total waste of paper and those little bags barely hold anything! When the EasyLunchbox bag arrived on my doorstep I was SO excited. This bento lunch box has it all- space, durability, and convenience.


The lunchbox kit comes with an insulated cooler bag and four stackable, dishwasher safe, compartmentalized containers that allow you to easily pack and organize your daily lunch without the added waste of plastic baggies and paper lunch sacks. I've used my EasyLunchbox to pack both mine and Jackson's lunches, demonstrating it's versatility as both an adult lunch bag and just as useful for baby's snacks. The EasyLunchbox is also fabulous for packing kid's lunch boxes! One of the best parts of the EasyLunchbox system is that you don't have stacks of mismatched containers and lids that don't fit cluttering up your cabinet!
One of my favorite features of the EasyLunchbox is that you can fit up to three lunches in one small bag- making it perfect for trips to the zoo and sports events. If you only use one or two of the trays you can also fit a container of soup and drink in the bag as well. You also are less likely to resort to pre-packaged "convenience foods" (that are usually full of fat and sugar) when everything fits into its own separate compartment.
Pros: Versatile, high-quality, great for the environment, and convenient!
Cons: It may be difficult to fit certain foods in the different compartments of the tray.
Bottom Line: The EasyLunchbox is a great timesaver and cuts down on trash. It is equally useful for all members of the family and makes traveling a cinch!

I learned that the lids are not super tight fitting as they are meant to be opened easily by little fingers. Small children won’t need help opening up these portable lunch containers. They stay closed, but even toddlers will find them quick and easy to open. :)

Hi Christy,

Love that they're microwave safe, perfect for heating up leftovers at work. If I win this give-a-way I can finally stop reusing plastic baggies (they always eat away at my eco-conscience) and my husband will be thrilled! :)
