Make Packing School Lunches Easier with EasyLunchboxes + Prize Pack Giveaway {EXPIRED}

by Marcy on August 29, 2012 · 76 comments

This giveaway has ended. Winner is #72, Jacueline.

We all know that packing a lunch can save you money, but who knew that it could also be fun? If you are still looking for a great lunch system for your kids (or even for yourself or your significant other) be sure to check out EasyLunchboxes!

The EasyLunchboxes lunch bag and food storage container set is made of non-toxic, food-safe, polypropylene (PP or plastic #5). They are BPA-free and phthalate-free and are safe for the refrigerator, freezer, microwave, & dishwasher. This system is kid friendly and easy to open – an added plus for little hands!

I have been using this system for my 6 year old since last March, and I have personally found them to make packing school lunches so much easier! I love the divided containers – they keep food from touching – and it helps me with portion sizes. I also like that the divided containers are made to fit into the lunch box – and that I have extra room to add any additional items that we might need (including an ice pack – this is my current favorite – because it stays cold for a LONG time and it takes up such little space in the lunch box!). You can actually stack up to 3 storage containers into one lunch bag if needed!

At right around $22 for a lunch bag and set of 4 storage containers,  I feel that the EasyLunchboxes system is affordable – especially because I am no longer going through boxes of plastic baggies at an alarming rate! Not to mention I am helping the environment. :-) You can purchase EasyLunchboxes items on Amazon here – plus US residents get FREE Shipping! (Note that the food storage containers are currently sold out, but should be available in September).

This summer I used the EasyLunchboxes containers to pack lunches for my girls and I to take to the park. I loved that the containers stacked together and fit into my larger soft cooler without any issue. The containers are also easy to hold which was nice because we weren’t always able to snag a table. My girls love eating out of these containers so much that I often put their lunches in them at home as well!

If you are looking for new ideas for packing lunches this school year, be sure to check out the EasyLunchboxes Yummy Lunch Gallery for tons of inspiration! Pinterest is another great place to find inspiration!

I really like these, and the Flexi Freeze Sheets are really cool!

24 AngieSC August 29, 2012 at 6:30 PM

I love that the containers fit perfectly in the cooler so they won’t slosh around inside the bag. The portion control is really good as well since I will eat a whole bag of everything!

25 Connie August 29, 2012 at 8:13 PM

What caught my eye was that they are bpa free.

I like the olive green colored bag, and the fact that four trays can stack in the bag–i have 4 kids, so that would be perfect for picnics and outings. I also like a bunch of the recipe/lunch ideas.

I like how it is one container to open, but it can hold 3 different foods. My 2nd grader has a hard time opening some of the containers I’ve sent for lunches in the past. But I’m also really liking the krust buster sandwich maker

I like the EasyLunchbox Divided Food Containers to keep lunch food from touching other food and I also like that it’s reusable.
