This way I can also save by making more homemade snacks and lunch stuff because I can prepack for a few days too. With so many incredible options for my family on a budget, Kitchen Stuff Plus made it easy for me to take care of all our back to school lunch needs.
The first thing we needed were durable, large lunch bags big enough to fit our new bento style containers as well as the snack containers too so these Kitchen Stuff Plus Insulated Trek lunch bags were perfect. Each boy has their own colour and they are large enough to fit everything they need. My daughter doesn’t take as much to school, so we grabbed her a girly style lunch tote perfect for my picky stylish teen.
Next up we needed some bento boxes that were able to fit a sandwich or wrap and at least a snack or two. My kids usually bring 3-4 snacks a day so using the Kitchen Stuff Plus Lunch Pop! bento, we can save a ton of plastic bags and since each one has separate areas, nothing mixes up and things like fruit don’t make their sandwiches soggy.
With two different sizing options of rectangle or round, we’ve got all our bases covered. These bento boxes are silicone and fold down for better storage and they won’t take up huge amounts of cupboard space when storing them. They are easy to wash and dry or the silicone bases are dishwasher safe. I can’t wait to really put these to the test this year.
I also got two different types of snack containers. One with two large sides that I can use for cut up fruit, crackers and cheese or really anything even homemade muffins and cookies. The Locksy Clink n’ Go containers are the perfect compliment for all our lunch needs.
I also grabbed some Locksy Click n’ Go Sandwich containers that will eliminate that squished sandwich we always get when using plastic bags.
Next are the Locksy Clink n’ Go snack and dip containers as my kids love their veggies and dip and this way again they are separate and easily transportable.
My daughter is a huge fan of salad, so we also got the perfect Locksy Click n’ Go salad container with dressing container and cutlery built right in. She can throw a salad together in the morning and since the dressing is separate her salad stays fresh and crisp until lunch time.
I only needed one new thermos for water this year as the younger boys have brand new ones I bought last year as does my daughter. We decided on the larger thermos for my oldest son as he drinks more and needs fewer refills at school this way. The Thermos Thermax 18oz Water Bottle with Sipper Lid is the perfect addition to his lunch bag.
Kitchen Stuff Plus made going plastic free for back to school this year so easy and with their prices I was able to do it without breaking the bank too. The investment in these containers will far outweigh the cost of using plastic for the whole year and I love that we are going to be adding less waste and helping the environment this way too.
