Awesome collection of lunch box ideas..they look so tasty..thanks a ton! Now if only I could reproduce all of this, I would really be proud of myself as a mom:)
You have totally sold me on the lunchbots boxes. Which bag do you put these into? Do you have the lunch bots bag itself? I have to order from amazon lunchbots now, so was wondering if the regular lunch bags that kids, if it would fit into it? If the box is kept upright, would the contents spill over into the other compartments? Please suggest at the earliest! Thanks!
