This is the same lunch tote that I purchased for myself!
How much do you spend on your lunch at work? Even if you are being conservative, $5 a day on lunch 5 days a week totals to at least $1,300 a year. And if you are spending $5 or less going out, you can bet that 9 times out of 10, it isn’t healthy. The only bonuses of going to a sit-down restaurant are that you MIGHT be eating healthier, and there is less paper and plastic waste than eating “fast food”.
My healthy challenge to you: Pack your lunch. There are so many benefits to it, it is amazing that there are still so many who eat out every day! First, if you pack your own lunch, you can eat so much healthier. A bag of carrots, an apple, a sandwich, cottage cheese. So much better than french fries! And you won’t have to spend so much time on the treadmill trying to work it off. Second, you can do your part to be green by using a lunch tote rather than brown paper bags. (even when you re-use them, they are worn out by one week of use.) And third, you can easily save money by making your lunch. After going on a budget with my husband a year ago, we both got re-usable lunch bags. We budget for every little expense, and you would be surprised how much can be saved by getting your food at the grocery store and spending 10 minutes each morning to put a healthy lunch together. It also saves time, since you no longer have to leave work just to eat.
eBags Lunch Cooler
Not sure what type of lunch bag to get? Anything insulated is perfect when you do not have anywhere cold to store your lunch. Pick a bag that has room for what you need. If you plan on packing a large garden salad, be sure to purchase a lunch bag large enough to hold the container you plan on packing in. Want to keep your soda or beverage cool? You might want a bag with a compartment that can hold a cold pack. eBags has over 250 lunch bags!! The choices are almost endless.
