Pack Your Lunch in a BUILT NY Lunch Bag

Making lunches can be a tiring job.  Not only can the actual task become tiresome, but finding the right lunch bag and finding unique ideas to pack into that lunch bag gets tiring throughout the year.  I have spent money on several different types of lunch bags over the last few years, and was never quite satisfied.  The square lunch bags never seemed to hold enough, and were difficult to clean.

Around the middle of the last year, we received a Built NY Gourmet Getaway Lunch Tote in a gift basket that we had won.  Since my daughter’s old lunch kit was ready to be tossed in the garbage, we decided to give this lunch bag a try.

And we LOVED it!

Not only did the Gourmet Getaway Lunch tote expand to fit a variety of containers needed for her lunch, it was MACHINE WASHABLE! So when spills happened (and they did) it was easy to quickly throw through the washing machine and have it come out looking as good as new again.

Since we loved my daughter’s lunch tote so much, we were thrilled to receive 2 new Built NY Lunch bags to start the new school year.  My daughter received another Gourmet Getaway Lunch Tote.  She is SUPER excited that the inside is a deep, vibrant pink.

Crosstown Lunch bag

My son received the Crosstown Lunch Bag in a blue and grey camouflage color which he loves.  While his lunch bag is not machine washable, the interior is easy to wipe clean.  The Crosstown Lunch Bag is 9″W x 10.6H and has the following features:

  • Insulates food on the go for up to four hours (time varies depending on external temperatures)
  • Interior easy to wipe clean
  • Stores flat
  • Roll-top design Velcro closure ensures food freshness and insulation

I take leftovers or make a nice sandwich.

I'm pretty boring, I usually just make a sandwich and bring an apple or something. Sometimes I get creative and make a salad and bring dressing on the side.
