These were the words of my five year old this morning.

“Yep,” I said.

“That’s weird,” she replied.

Hmmm … I guess she’s right. It is odd. It’s odd that my five year old daughter knows what it means to blog. And, arguably, “lunch boxes” is an odd topic. But probably most odd of all: I think it’s perfectly normal. Anyway … here it is. The “lunch box” in question:

Bin of lunch items

This falls into the category of a simple little solution to make an every day “to-do” just a notch easier. It’s a bin full of lunch-making essentials: napkins, spoons, thermos, baggies, brown lunch bags, peanut butter, bread, crackers and other small snacks. This little gem, simple and “weird” as it may be to blog about, saves time. Everything you need to make lunch … in arms reach. Love that.

And don’t forget the label:

Labeled lunch bin

Have I told you about my friend the storage bin label? I love these labels. I use a printed template — so I can pick the font and color. It makes nice, big, easy to read, reusable labels. Fun, isn’t it? You can find them at Wal-Mart (sometimes) or something similar at Amazon. Due to my complete love of this product, and the inability to reliably find it at Wal-Mart, we carry them in our store. The uses for these little gems is endless!

So … it’s a quick, simple easy project that will save you time each and every day. Have fun!
