I started packing my own lunches back in 5th grade. My mom would have done it for me, but I was too stubborn, head-strong, and organized to let her.
Fifteen years later, I’m still packing lunches — and I’m still stubborn, head-strong, and organized!
Lunch packing definitely is not one of my all-time favorite activities; it can be more work than going out to eat or buying school lunches. However, after realizing how much money I can save and reading that school lunches are linked to obesity, I figured it was probably worth the time I spend packing lunches every day.
And since it’s THAT time of year, I figured it would be fun to share some lunch-packing tips, tools, and inspiration from other like-minded, frugal bloggers.
