Easy Lunch Boxes for Adults - Campfire Chic

I’ll be sending out two emails to the mailing list this month – you’ll want to get on the subscription list if you haven’t already. I have plans for lots of freebies and resources for the mailing list group this year.

This month is for:

This month’s intention is “Finish a project”

I was hoping to finish my quilt before this month started, but as I worked to get the binding onto the thing, I found out I miscalculated how much binding I would need by about 2 feet. Yay me and not being great at math. I have an order in for the same fabric bias tape and will be able to finish up the last two feet as soon as it gets here.

I’m in the need of tying something new, so I’ll be working on a short project I know I can finish in one night…more about that soon :)

I’m super close to being caught up with my Project Life for “year 27” — things got a little crazy while Alex and I moved but with the next order of photos. I gave away some of my Project Life core kit supplies and have plans to get rid of more…it’s just that SO MUCH come in those kits and I’d like to share with others. Also, I’ll need to finish this Project Life in about 5 weeks. Yikes.

On a more personal level (and totally unrelated to finishing), I am challenging myself to bring my lunch to work 12 times this month. It may not seem like a lot, but to go from bringing my lunch maybe four times a month to 12 is a big leap for me. I did a practice run last week and things went well, so why not continue the trend?

How I’ll be doing this:

  • Easylunchboxes (I bought the brights) are fun and easy to use. I like that there is such a huge community behind behind the whole thing so there are plenty of ideas for lunches for adults
  • Silicone baking cups – I use these to add things to the Easylunchboxes like hummus and small crackers that I don’t want to interact with other things
  • Making mini-food using this mini-muffin tin – I can’t wait to make some mini-mac n cheese and mini muffins to keep our lunches snazzy

    I’m working on bringing lunch into work more often. The Mr is helping as 2 or 3 days a week I make wraps for the both of us, the rest of the week he makes his own sandwhiches and I either bring in rice pots (bought ones, not the best but quick, easy and cheap) or I have leftovers from the night before, like the leftover meatball sauce with some pasta, or the leftover stir fry etc. I hope you make your 12, are you going to document it somewhere?

      I’m LOVING our #letsgetlunchy on Twitter! Thank you so so so much for motivating me to keep going, even when I don’t think I have any food in the house. I’m saving the photos I send you and will probably do some sort of roundup at the end of the month? I’ll reward myself with some more accessories, I think :D

    Those lunchkits are a great idea, and to use the silicon baking cups like that…I’m definitely going to have to employ that when I go back to work! (I love bringing lunch to work. It’s so much easier to eat properly – especially when you can brighten things up with fun food. Sandwiches get a bit boring after a while.)

      Kim – Seriously, it’s so nice having the bright colors to perk me up during lunchtime in our dreary lunchroom! The baking cups are a lifesaver, I’m so happy that they’re easy to clean and come in so many colors. I haven’t packed a sandwich yet, but it’s only the fourth day of my challenge! (I brought my lunch all last week, too, without sandwiches, so I guess that’s 8 days instead of 4?)
