Review & Giveaway: EasyLunchBox System! {CLOSED}

Looking for a way to save hundreds of dollars every year? PACK YOUR LUNCH! It's not just frugal - it's healthy too! I pack my lunch just about every day. Aside from saving money - it helps me to eat healthier and also watch my portion sizes. My EasyLunchBox System is the eco-friendly, sack lunch alternative - for kids and adults!

I was recently asked to try out a set of four EasyLunchBox containers and one of their fun cooler bags (See left).
  • The containers are made of durable, high quality plastic.
  • They come in bright, kid friendly colors (red, blue, green, orange)
  • The container has 3 compartments all under one lid!
  • Containers nest to take up less space!
  • Affordably priced at $13.99 for a set of 4 containers, and $7.95 for the cooler bag!
  • Dishwasher and microwave safe! (YES!!!!)
  • No BPA, PVC, or vinyl
I love these containers because they make it easy for me to portion my food out and go! No more scrounging for just the right size container to carry a few carrot sticks-- or juggling multiple containers. I can't tell you how many times I've lost one of my containers inside my work bag before I used the EasyLunchBox System! Also, you can save even more money by buying larger containers of yogurt or applesauce and just adding them to your lunch container (why pay more for the convenience sizes?!)

Because my morning are always hectic - I like to pack my lunch the night before. It's too easy to say 'I don't have time' when you have to do it in the morning. Typically I'll bring leftovers, and usually as I'm wrapping up dinner I pull out my containers and put them directly in the containers. Then in the morning I just grab and go! :)

Need some lunch bag inspiration? Check out some of their mouth watering lunch ideas ! With smaller proportions, its easy to re-work leftovers into a lunchtime delicacy!

Peanut butter sandwiches =0). They are easy, and don't have to be kept cold. My son doesn't even want jam or jelly...so they are really quick and easy. Thanks.
