Lunch....Getting the Creative "Juice" Going

I've been meaning to share one of my new favorite blogs with you, called Another Lunch. I love the adorable creativity this blogger comes up with on a daily basis to make her kiddos a healthy and FUN lunch on the go.

Awhile back, the Queen of Free posted a deal from GiltGroupe.com that allowed me to score a Goodbyn lunchbox for $2.95, shipped. (I know, right? Gotta love that Queen!) I had been eyeing that lunchbox because I had so many cute ideas of how to use it after reading Another Lunch. It's also a New Year's goal for me to spend less eating out, especially for lunch.

I love that the box itself reduces the amount of waste because there are no sandwich baggies, etc. There are no tiny parts to keep track of, just one lid that seals around each compartment, keeping them from spilling over. There's also a drink bottle that comes with the box and fits perfectly. The Goodbyn comes with two sheets of waterproof stickers to decorate your box...Titus and I had a lot of fun with that part....here's our Goodbyn in use this afternoon...

I was able to fit both my lunch, and my 3 year old's lunch in the same box :) (Making for one very happy momma with only 2 hands to get out the door, AND saving us from driving through Wendy's...again...) Pictured above: (top compartment) 1/2 peanut butter sandwich and a whole turkey sandwich cut in half, (middle) 1 wedge of Laughing Cow creamy swiss chesse with a Flintstone vitamin and water bottle, (bottom L to R) Reduced Fat Wheat Thin crackers, 5 oatmeal chocolate chip cookies (to eat and some to share!), a yogurt container, and organic snap pea crisps. That's a lot, right?!

We also packed this baby full of a quick lunch for our whole family on the way to Grandma's, Christmas Day...very convenient! We just had the box and extra drinks.

You can score a Goodbyn on GiltGroupe.com right now for $15 once you create a free account. Shipping is also FREE if you invite 10 friends by email. (Retail value is approx. $24.95)

Here's to being more creative with how we save on lunch this year...cheers!

I have never seen one of those lunchboxes. Totally cute! I think it is a great idea to pack your lunch when you are on the go. I have done it many times.
