Joe and I are really pretty good about taking our lunches to work with us. Some weeks we manage all the days and some weeks we only take things 3-4 days but overall we’re really good about taking food with us so we don’t go out to eat. We’re even pretty good about reusing tupperwares, I have a cooler lunch bag that I use and Joe reuses plastic shopping bags to take his lunch to work. The only thing we don’t reuse is the baggies and wrappers for things like chips, sandwiches, crackers etc. and recently they have become more popular online (I’ve seen them on a handful of blogs now) so today I decided to make my own!
My sandwich cozy. Click over to the link for a full tutorial… I won’t even try to post one here since it was her idea and she posted a great tutorial already! I did have a messy one my first try, so this one is technically my second cozy and it worked so much better!
A small snack bag, perfect for tortilla chips, crackers, fruit (grapes etc.), or ginger snaps! Again click over to the link if you’re interested since she has a great tutorial already!
I only made one of each thing today but I think I will make a few more so we would have enough for an entire week and then I can wash them all together. I should also probably make something a little manlier because I don’t think Joe would like a flowery fabric covered sandwich for lunch! I might try making some different sized baggies too, that might be nice but we’ll see.
