Packing a homemade lunches can be difficult because there are so many options to consider. What foods are you going to pack, how big of a lunch bag do you need, and most importantly how are you going to keep things fresh and cool.




I’ve been packing my daily lunches for a long time now and finding ways to keep things fresh and cool has been challenging. I’ve gone through several blue-ice packs in my days. They have either gotten lost, started leaking the nasty blue juice all over my food, or they simply take up too much space inside my lunch bags. The blue-ice packs aren’t cheap, so I began making my own reusable ice packs at home. Best of all, I only had to purchase two inexpensive items for my little DIY project.
