Lunch boxes that aren't hideous
I'm not a fan of insulated lunch bags. They make me feel like a dweeb. Like, "Please, PLEASE pummel me into the industrial recycle bin and squeeze strawberry GoGurt on my head!" In high school, I carried a big fabulous black purse instead of a backpack. When lunchtime (or, you know, first period) came round, I fished Cheetos snack packs and Diet Coke out of the bottom. They were "insulated" by my crumpled, alarmingly erroneous math homework.
Old habits die hard. As I fished a Lean Cuisine box out of my purse today and a wayward eyelash curler came flying out, I noticed something. Advertised on the back of the box were these totally cute insulated lunch boxes. I feel like I could safely carry these without reporting Timmy Too Tall to the hall monitor.
They're $9.95, and $5 goes to the Susan G. Komen breast cancer foundation. And natch, they're the perfect fit for your low-cal microwave delicacy. Let's hope there's extra room for the chocolate cookies you binge on when you're ravenous an hour later. Not that I would ever do that. Nope.
