Default Lunch Bag Help…Paper Bags Won't Do



I need help picking out a good lunch bag.I need something durable that won't suck up the smell of the faculty lounge fridge. Something that has room for a 12-hour day worth of snacks and meals. Also, something that can stay cold when I can't place the bad in the fridge.
Figured that I can't eat healthy if I don't bring my lunch to work. I've been eating fast food for weeks.

I go back and forth between an old school metal lunch box (I get so many compliments on it, lol) and an insulated lunch box like I give to my daughter for school.

Amazon has a bunch of them pretty low priced, but you can buy them from target, walmart, etc.

In the camping departments at many stores, like Walmart, there are lots of insulated bags of all sizes. My DH uses one for his lunches/snacks and we even found one with a couple pockets so he can carry some of his paperwork in it as well. I have seen ones with freezer packs so you can keep the lunch cold all day, too.

I have been in the market for a new lunch bag for a while now. Mine is functional, but has been stained and looks pretty gross. I love the style and size, but haven't been able to fine a replacement in store. I have been browsing Etsy and there are thousands of lunchbags! Have a look, they might have just what you're looking for

My current lunch bag, I got at Wal-Mart several years ago, back in the camping dept. Has a long shoulder strap, big, solid plastic liner, 3 outer pockets, extra storage in zipper lid! Love that thing!

Pick up a few of those icey things you can toss in the freezer, take one, freeze one, so you always have a cold one, and you're good to go!

For the record, this lunch box would hold a 12 pack of beer bottles, so plenty big enough! Solid, lots of storage! I pack my breakfast, snacks and lunch. No problem.
