Rubbermaid LunchBlox

RubbermaidToday was the first day of school. My Doodle was up at 6am, an hour before my alarm clock went off. Back to bed time on Sunday went off without a hitch! (wiping sweat from my brow)
So, as with every first of the month we go through the lunch list that they bring home to see what they may or may not eat. It’s kind of a pain in the tush because rarely do they eat the same things. One day one kid eats cold lunch, one day the other does. Then of course there’s the rare day the BOTH eat at school.
RubbermaidThis morning we started off the same way we start every school morning, figuring out what they’re going to take for lunch. Figured out neither boy wanted hot lunch. So, I pulled out the LunchBlox for Doodle.
I also realized the boys hadn’t told me we were out of a several pertinent items like string cheese and yogurt, the two items the boys eat and I don’t. Time to scramble.
LunchBloxThe summer had him eating mostly deli meat and crackers so they went into the Blox. Something I typically forget to send with my boys is a vegetable and the containers were so perfect, something clicked in my brain that sliced cucumber would fit perfectly into one of the smaller ones. He was pretty excited to have it with his lunch!

These fit nicely into his lunch box. I was able to fit eve rything into the small cups. Buddy took a pb&j, but since he did his own lunch, he didn’t grab the long, thin sandwich Blox! Hey, I’m not complainin’! The kid is helping me out!image
I found at the store the other day that there are different sets and I plan on getting the one that shows you can take along a salad easily, which would be perfect for me for lunch. I could cut up cubes of ham in one, chopped carrots in another, salad dressing, spinach leaves, and cherry tomatoes!
And some day I hope to have lots of leftovers because right now I cook so little. But when that happens, I love the entree LunchBlox as well! Awesome little containers for those few potatoes I didn’t want to throw away cuz they were so yummy, bacon to warm up over my chicken, etc!

Mimi,

I actually have some of these they are rather handy. They stack very well together and you can get a fairly descent amount of food in them! I would recommend them to anyone.

I have one of these and I LOVE it! I want to get a few more because the kids and hubby are fighting over the one we have. I need to get the one with the bigger container for salads (or whatever).

We also have this kit and absolutely love it! I was surprised at how much actually fits in the teeny tiny containers in this set! I love the ice pack, too!
