What’s the worst part of bringing lunch to work every day? Actually having to pack it. As much as we’d love to save a bundle of money by repurposing last night’s leftovers, the idea of cramming and toting it all in some cumbersome non-microwavable vessel for all of work to see is bleak. Because let’s face it, that mismatched, stained, and “where did this even come from?” container is just not cute.
Which is exactly why we’ve sought out the chicest Tupperware that will (hopefully) compel us to get our lunch-packing shit together this season. It’s time to say goodbye to random lids and cluttered cabinets and hello to sleek bento boxes, colorful bowls and elegant salad jars.
Scroll ahead for the food containers that will actually get you pumped to pack tomorrow’s lunch!
