School is just around the corner and I’m trying to prepare as best as I can to get back into the school routine – without going too crazy. This year I’d like to do a better job with making/providing better lunch options.
The lunches at school are good and not terribly expensive but when you have more than one child it is definitely more cost effective to make your own. Making our own lunches also offers a great opportunity for the kids to learn how to make their own lunches and how to do a little work to save money.

This year we bought new lunch box containers – The Sistema Klip It Lunch Cube
I also heard great things about the Ziploc Divided Rectangle Containers
We went with the Sistema Klip It Lunch Cube because they fit into the kids’ lunchboxes better and I think it might do a better job at keeping food in but we’ll see. As long as the kids don’t put their containers sideways it should be ok…
