Now that the brown paper lunch bag has bit the dust (for most people anyways), and more and more people are trying to reduce their carbon foot print on the environment, as well as save money, the line of bags for lunch has grown into chic and trendy. But one that might be a great way to go is the personalized lunch bags.
If you bring your sandwiches to work, and so do many others, and they all end up in the same fridge in the break room, wouldn't it be nice to be able to pick yours out right away?
As kids, our moms gave us personalized bags, with the simple swipe of a pen in large embarrassing letters right? Well now there are lines of designer bags now, that look much better.
Many companies are now offering to machine embroider your initials on it, for a cool and trendy look, but also to identity your snack in a hurry. If you tend to get non descript black bags, then this would be a great way to go.
You can get many designer totes online. Amazon carries some that fits the bill quite nicely. If you don't like loud and splashy bags, then you could go for more of this plain and clean style with a large letter monogrammed in the center of it. Such as this insulated lunch tote by Danielle.

If you do like the idea of a bit of splash, or you want to give these bags as gifts, then there is this other line of insulated totes by Belvah. This company creates beautiful patterns that will have the tote standing out on its own without the need of a letter.
You can get gorgeous patterns and I especially like the zebra stripe. If you bring your meals and snacks to work you might as well look trendy!

So, if you like the idea of taking your meals to work or school, but what something totally unique for yourself or for a gift. Something that stands out enough to be stylish, trendy and be able to identify your bag right away, then consider personalized totes and bags as a great alternative to that plain bag you carry now.
Just because you are trying to save money, by bringing your own food and snacks to work or school, doesn't mean it can't be stylish. The personalized bag by Danielle, with a large monogrammed letter on it, is very sleek, and professional, and would be great for work.
It all depends on your personality, and what you like. Make eating fun, and keep your food cool at the same time. No one said bringing your food to work had to be boring. But now you can at least identify your own bag in the company break room fridge!
The money you can save by bringing your food can add up big time. You can bring more variety from home, and if you make your food the night before, then it is just a matter of grabbing it in the morning. Don't forget to include snacks as well, as they can be sneaky for adding to your budget. Those vending machines are not cheap.
You can usually get a box of granola bars, or chips or chocolate bars in bulk, that work out way cheaper than that one you get in the vending machine. So you don't have to give up on your favorite treats just because you are taking your meals to work.
So, treat yourself to nice snacks and meals, and upgrade to a personalized lunch bag to make your lunch at work enjoyable!
