DH and I both WOH, and DD goes to daycare. I am in charge of packing lunches for DD and myself every night. We each have a laptop lunchbox, and I like that style (the 4 little containers inside the box), but it's exhausting to pack, come home, unpack, wash, repack, repeat for 5 days a week. DH and I talked about it (tight budget) and decided that it would be worth it to buy enough little containers so that on Sunday evenings, I can pack up a week's worth of foods for DD and myself, and then during the week it's just a matter of scooping up the prefilled containers and throwing them in the lunchbag. Picture, for example, 5 little containers filled with applesauce, one for each day's lunch for DD.
We cannot afford to buy a bunch of extra laptop lunchbox containers. I'm looking for containers that are budget-friendly, safe (non toxic, especially given that sometimes there will be food in them that needs to be heated up in a microwave), and small enough to fit several of them into a laptop lunchbox-size lunchbag.
Any ideas or links?
