Ask Belle: Packing a Lunch
Jan 24, 2013
Hi Belle,I was wondering if you have any suggestions for cute, professional lunchboxes. I’ve been on the hunt for awhile and can’t seem to find anything professional and insulated.Thanks again for your blog! Kay
I never had the patience to pack my own lunch, or the will to get up 20 minutes early to make it. But if I had, I would probably have just tossed it in a brown paper bag and stuck it in my purse. That’s one of the pros of liking large handbags (see: Minkoff MAB and Biennial Satchel).
I did find an insulate lunch container disguised as a paper bag that was kind of fun. I see a lot of staffers carrying those neoprene BUILT lunch boxes, and they’re fairly professional looking. And I sort of adore this pale mint lunch bag for its happy colors and clean lines.
But since I don’t carry a lunch, I don’t really know what makes a good one beyond aesthetics. So hopefully, some of your fellow readers have some suggestions that will help you, since I know there are a lot of frugal ladies out there who bring a lunch.
