One of the quickest ways to gain a ton of weight or lose all your money in the back is to eschew packing a lunch and instead go out for lunch frequently. As someone who likes to save money and is picky, I’ve always brought my lunch, but recently I’ve become amazed by how much money (and time!) I am saving compared to my coworkers who spend 20 minutes of their 45 minute lunch break each day driving to a nearby fast food restaurant or having GrubHub deliver.
However, packing a lunch isn’t always easy. It depends on what kind of food you’re bringing, what situation you’ve got in the break-room, and your own personal preferences. These six items should help you be the queen of the lunch packing brigade, regardless of what your situation is. Keep in mind that you know your situation best and should plan accordingly. Some people prefer generalized containers, some prefer segmented ones. Some people toss their dressing on in the morning, some add at lunch. No matter what you prefer, or what you’re packing, these ten accessories–including five unique bags that will make the experience a little more fashionable–are a must have for the working woman not trying to break the bank.
