Growing up, the item that I was always most excited about getting during back to school shopping was my lunchbox. I couldn't wait to break out the PB&J from my shiny, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle box with matching thermos.
But just because I'm an adult doesn't mean that I have to resort to brown bagging it (how boring!). Bringing your lunch to work in a lunchbox isn't only eco-friendly, but it saves you a ton of money.
Here are five adult-friendly lunchboxes that will brighten up your mid-day meal (plus one just for nostalgia):
With retro flair, these lovely little oilcloth bags (top right) make me want to don my most mod dress while I eat, Betty Draper-style.
Not only will you look pretty in pink, but you'll also be supporting the Susan G. Komen Foundation.
A colorful take on a classic tiffin lunchbox. Great for keeping your food separated.
Release your inner sassy lassie with a tartan plaid lunchbox, kilt not included.
This pretty little kit comes with a stainless steel food container, three matching napkins, and a spork. And just in case there's spillage, you can simply throw it in the washing machine.
Only because I had this exact one as a child. Yes, I liked Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (Raphael was my favorite). I was a hardcore chick even as an 8-year-old.
Do you carry your lunch in a lunchbox?
