Ah back to school....
the terror of the daily lunch bag grind....
3 weeks in and we're already hitting the 'lunch is boring' phase...
But I found a fun way to cheer up the lunch box:
Bumkins are reusable snack bags, that help cut down on the waste of plastic ziploc baggies. Available in a variety of fun prints, from DC Comics, to Dr. Seuss, to Disney, the bags are made of an easy wipe, waterproof fabric.
We were sent a fun set of three bags to check out:
The large bag is sandwich size, at 9" x 8" , as you can see from the picture below. You can also get a 2 bag set with a medium bag sized (8.5"x 6.5") and a smaller bag (sized 8.5" x 4.5"). We received the cheerful and bright Ribbon sets, with ribbons, flowers and birds. Perfect for cheering up the lunch box!
Thanks to their wide mouth design, the bags are easy to fill.
The large bag is great for me for breakfast snacks for work. While Miss Grace uses the small bag for cookies (we can get 6-7 Oreos in it easy), and the medium bag for her Pirate's Booty of Vegetable Sticks (I am SO thrilled my child wants HEALTHY snacks again this year!).
The best part is the bags can get reused, and then when they start to get 'funky' (da kid's slang), then they can be thrown in the washing machine, along with her school clothes! Their fabric is stain resistant, but they do need a weekly cleaning, at minimum! Just hang dry and they are ready to go the next morning! The colors stay bright and true, even after multiple washings! And SO much better than using countless plastic bags! Plus the ziippers have stood up very well to all that yanking back and forth!
These really are the handiest little bags! You could use them for anything! Even coeds off to college can use them for snacks, backup, tolietries, and the like.! And there is a set to make everybody happy- check out some of the other choices:
DC Clear front bags not available yet, but will be soon!
Note- the Disney and Seuss characters are not available in sets of 3, you have t buy the large bag, and then the 2 smaller bags in a set. But this allows you to mix and match, so it's a great idea! The sets would be fun gift ideas, and perfect for certain stockings at the end of the year (121 days and counting...)
