Take Your Lunch to Work PLUS a Thirty-One GIVEAWAY!

As you probably know, I like to save money. (Of course, I like to spend it too!)

However, one way that we save money is by having my husband take a lunch to work. One couple I read about saved $2,640 annually by kicking the habit of eating out and brown bagging it.

In addition to saving money, it can also be much healthier to make your own lunch if you make the right choices. Want some tips to get you started? Here you go! 

Do you still need a little incentive to start saving money and your health? I have just the thing! Plus, it will reduce waste and it's way cuter than a brown bag.


Adorable isn't it? Who knew you could look so good while saving money?!? I really love my tote and I'm super happy to offer you a chance to win a thermal tote like mine from Kara Wardell, an independent consultant with


You probably already know that this company has super cute stuff to offer, but in case you're not familiar with them, check out Kara's site here. Kara is also offering 10% off your order for anyone who wins the contest--even if you don't win the giveaway! :) This offer is good through midnight, February 28, 2011.

so many ways to get a chance to win :)

Wow, they have some nice bags. I think the organizing shoulder bags looks like it would be great to carry some tatting in!!

(Dana!) I already posted the top of my wish list on Kara's blog which includes the large utility tote. My next choice would probably be the All In One Organizer. I recently ordered 3 of the lunch totes for gifts - so cute!

Very cute bag. We are all about taking our lunch. One, we live in a very rural town. Closest McDonald's is 45 miles away. Really! Plus, home packed lunches are cheaper than school lunches for my kindergartner.
Glad you posted this on Moms Together. Can't wait to connect with more of the mom's there.
Thanks!

Becky @ purposefulhomemaking.com said...

wow! 45 miles! That's actually not a bad thing (in my opinion!) :) Hope you'll check out the blog more Melissa. :)

I enjoyed the posting on having a cookie swap. I think this is a fun idea, Since so many things go on in Decemeber I'm thinking of having one in April or June. Thought this might be a fun twist.
