Like many of us I work away from home. While I do that, I need to eat lunch or snacks. These days it is too expensive and let's face it, with the economy who can afford to eat out every day. Not me, that’s for sure.
To save money, I bring my lunch to and from work. Sure I can bring a plastic bad or paper sack but I like the fact that insulated lunch coolers are compact and durable.
Insulated lunch bags don't just help save money but they also keep my food safe to eat without the fear of food spoiling. This is due to a plastic storage box inside the cooler.
While at K-Mart about a month ago, I found a lunch cooler by Cool Cell. They had different types of insulated lunch coolers like Coleman and other bags that had the NFL logo and NASCAR for double the price of this one, however I feel you are just paying for the name.
I've had my lunch bag for about 6 months now and so far I am very happy with it. There is lots of storage with 1 front pocket and one netted side pocket and if I need to I can unzip a top zipper to extend the top of the bag to give more room should I need it. The cooler is aproximatly 13 1/2 by 5 by 13.
I don’t just use my bag for work lunches alone. I also take them when I go to vendor shows for my side Scentsy business. I can put all sorts of food and drinks in there, like 8 12 oz cans of soda, or 10 peanut butter sandwiches, chips, and other snacks. To keep my food cold, I do have to use ice blocks or cold packs, however when using these, my food will stay cold for up to 12 hours.
Having these lunch coolers have made it easy and convenient and has saved a lot of room that I would be using should I have to keep plastic or paper bags. The only downfall is that I wish it was a little smaller and less bulky but otherwise I use it everyday and I love it!
