A Must Have for Your Back to Schooler: A Giveaway!

My baby starts preschool next week!!! How did that happen?! How is my first born old enough to leave his Mommy and go to school? I’m heartbroken…I’m anxious…I’m excited…I’m lots of things!!! But, I must admit that I’ve been a little obsessive when thinking about Quinn’s lunches! If he’s going to leave his Mommy 3 days a week, I want to make sure that he takes a piece of home (and fun) with him in his lunch! I want his lunches to be creative…and different…and I want ever kid to be jealous! (just kidding………kind of!) ;)

So, when I came across Easy Lunchboxes, I knew it was the perfect way for me to pack Quinn fun, bento style lunches! EasyLunchBoxesBanner8 With this system, you get to choose one insulated lunch tote…

…and you get 4 bento-style plastic food containers that have 3 sections…and only ONE lid! (so nice for little ones!…and their teachers!)

Containers4PackMedWhen our set came in the mail, I was EXSTATIC! I couldn’t wait to show Quinn his cool lunch box for school. And, to be honest…he was underwhelmed! The solid black cube wasn’t enough for my character-obsessed 3 year old. So, this Momma used some quick brain power and came up with a fabulous idea…Jibbitz. Mammer and Slickpaw took Q to the Crocs Store to pick out characters to his heart’s content…and I punched holes in the strap to insert them all! Voila!… Sept 1-2 011

After some embroidery and attaching a cute name tag that Quinn got as a party favor, his plain black cube was transformed! Isn’t it darling!?Sept 1-2 012 Sept 1-2 013 Sept 1-2 014Now we’re “ready!” (Let’s be honest…I’ll never be ready!) I’m so excited to start making lunches using this great system…and I feel good that I’m helping the environment too. (no baggies!)

What about you?! Are you “ready?” It doesn't matter if you have a child still at home or are an adult that takes your lunches to work, this would be a great and easy way for you to pack a lunch! And, thanks to Easy Lunchboxes, one lucky friend can win one… EasyLunchBoxes_200x300Here’s how to enter…

YAY! My bag tag ... so glad ya'll are using it. :) What a neat lunch system ... I love the divided trays ... I never know what to put my boys' food in, so I end up just using baggies. This is much better!

Summer, Justin, Blake, and Sutton said...

And I like dark red or aqua!

Shannon Family said...

Oh wow! That would be great for my 4 year old to take. It is amazing what new lunch boxes they come up with!

Hannah loves the aqua bag! Perfect for her to start school with such an awesome/easy lunch box!

TheCraftFam4 said...

Hannah saw this and said she wanted pink but I told her we can find a way to put her name on it in pink! This will be so much better than packing everything in sperate plastic baggies!

TheCraftFam4 said...

I "liked" them on fb! I really hope I win :) thanks for all the sweet giveaways you have been doing! Hope to see you at MAC next week :)

nicolepage said...

I was actually just looking for something like this yesterday and came across their website! Such a great idea for picky little ones who don't like their food to touch!

nicolepage said...

I would choose aqua so i could use it for either of my kids, but Savannah Grace would flip out over the purple!

Chrys and Mike said...

I've been wanting one of these! I'd love to not use so much plastic.

Chrys and Mike said...

I'd pick the olive color.

Brittney said...

Kimberly said...

I do need one (or two) of these handy lunchboxes and containers!! Creighton started preschool two weeks ago and trying to be creative while packing his lunches (and Griffin's for Mother's Day Out) can be tricky and a chore. The containers would help me simplify! Also, I can't find a lunchbox I like for Griffin (Creighton's came with his Pottery Barn backpack) so I'm super excited that you've shared such a great idea and a perfect one for my littlest man. If I don't win, I'm going to order me one anyway.

Kimberly said...

Creighton would want aqua and Griffin would want Dark Red or Olive!

Jaclyn said...

I have had my eye on this "system" for a couple weeks now, and I would LOVE to win!

KRIS.10.K said...

This is such a great idea! Thanks for sharing. Even though I don't have kids (yet), I would love this to pack my lunches everyday. I always try to pack my lunch to avoid going out for lunch, but it becomes challenging to minimize plastic zip locks or getting everything for a lunch into one bag. This system is perfect!

KRIS.10.K said...

I would pick the olive bag! Green is my favorite color =)

A Growing Family said...

I was just researching these two days ago! I have 3 little ones starting preschool on Tuesday so I would love to win one!

Red or aqua!

Kellie Lawson said...

I'd love a cute lunch box for my 20month-old who is starting preschool just one day a week beginning this Friday. I've actually thought he didn't need a lunchbox since I wasn't sure what to do, but this system is great! I think the divided compartments will be perfect for him to handle.

Courtney said...

My daughter Hannah is in preschool and would love this!

Courtney said...

Gertie Mae said...

This would be great for my 3 yo daughter to take to preschool.

So much fun! I've never heard of this before but am in love. My daughter starts MDO next week and I've been obsessing about what to pack for lunch.

I would probably pick the purple or the aqua for Avery!

Mark and Mandi said...

Comment #3...I am now a Facebook fan too! Super excited about these lunch box systems!

Amanda said...

This lunchbox would be perfect for me because I'm a kindergarten teacher. Not having to put everything into baggies would save time, money, and the environment! This is such a good idea!

Amanda said...

I'd love the black one!

I totally love this!! I am so glad you put up this post, bc. I have been looking hight and low to find Eli a lunch tote to embroider and also the plastic food containers to go inside are wonderfull!!!

Great idea to decorate the strap! We'll use that even if we don't win!

Oh! We would pick the olive one. Zach's favorite color is green!

Shana, Cory and Colton said...

I would love one of these! My son starts MDO next week and they are required to have containers like this--divided with only 1 lid. These would be perfect!

Shana, Cory and Colton said...

I would choose black and embroider his name on it in blue or green!

KDub said...

bobo2roo said...

We would pick the green!

Jill said...

What a great idea! I love packing my kids a "mom approved" lunch and Easy LunchBoxes would definitely simplify things. I hate using all those plastic baggies!

Jill said...

I like all the colors and the fact you can get creative and personalize them any way you like.

Jill said...

We take our lunches everyday (to work and school). Easy LunchBoxes would definety save time when it comes to making four lunches every night!

annalee said...

i need an easy lunchbox system to simplify packing lunches for mother's day out!

Steph said...

I need an easy lunch box because I pack my lunch every day for work. I am an art teacher with lots of students and little time for lunch! =)

Heather Caldwell said...

I would pick black because apparently that is my 5 yr old's favorite color this week.

Unknown said...

My daughter is starting kindergarten in 2wks and I just realized packing lunch isn't as simple as bowls from my pantry in the lunch bag attached to her backpack. It requires a degree to figure out the bentos, bots, lunch bags that work. Its 12.18am and I'm seriously panicked.

Life shouldn't be that complicated.

Unknown said...

Oh she'd love the purple bag to go with her purple backpack.
