One of my goals this year was to eat out less, especially taking the kids through fast food less. Nation, my first born, was never exposed to fast food...but come kid two and three and they know to start saying "french fries" when we round the corner at the drive-thru. Not going through McDonald's this year wasn't exactly a specific goal, but in the back of my mind it was. I can honestly say I don't think we've been through once this year.
I bought some storage containers [in fun colors!] to motivate me to take sack lunches more often. I bought the above items from The Container Store [which if you've never been is like organizational afterlife]. These are Sistema.
Dishwasher/Microwave/Freezer Safe. BPA Free & Stackable.
The lunch cube to-go holds a sandwich & two "sides".
I also bought LunchSkins as an alternative to Ziplocs for three reasons:
a. tired of spending money on Ziplocs
b. these come in amazing colors & prints
c. they're reusable ["green"]
You might also like to know they are:
- certified food-safe fabric
- hand sewn in the USA
- quick-drying, lightweight cotton fabric
- replace hundreds of plastic baggies
- lead-free, bpa-free and phthalate-free
Not only did we enjoy 2 hours of sunshine at the park, but we ate healthy while saving money and by far were the cutest three boys at park. I mean swinging monkey-in-the-middle-Moses was just too much for me!
