Today we clear out all the forgotten lunchboxes from the shelf. We can only hope that when you open them, you don’t find a long lost sandwiches inside. This is also a good time to check over your re-useable ice pack collection. Let’s check out how to organize lunch containers, insulated boxes, lunch boxes.
Pare Down the Collection
Sort your collection, grouping similar types together. Once you know how many you own, it will be easier to pick the best and “toss” the rest. Hold onto the ones you use all the time. Or the ones you could need soon.
Share the Excess
Consider donating the still-good, but not-needed, insulated bags, thermoses, and lunch boxes.
Toss the Trash
The bag with the broken zipper can’t be donated. If you have ones that are zipped, cracked, have a broken strap, or a missing lid, you’ll have to toss them. Check out Earth911.com if you need local recycling options.
Water Bottle Storage
For the ones you are going to keep, try this clever rack to store your water bottle collection. Nest smaller bags inside larger ones.
