Heat Up Your Lunch – And Win

Brown bagging it makes you feel like you’re back in high school, and it isn’t particularly green. Or you can go with the big cooler, take up most of the space in the communal fridge and feel like the uber dorky mom you are.

Maybe not.

Haute Lunch has taken the functional but frumpy lunch bag that’s de riguer thanks to the green-up-the-workplace move, and made it into haute couture. Think mod spots and zebra stripes in place of that same old foldable neon green pouch.

With ample space for a three-course meal and your kid’s sippy cup, er, a Thermos of your own, Haute Lunch bags have the size and look that makes them a stand-in for your purse. Except they’re not.

Lined on the outside to avoid leaks and on the inside to keep in the cold and keep out the heat, the Haute Lunch is making it worth bagging your lunch again (as if you had any other choice in this economy).

Want one? Haute Lunch creator Wendy is handing out one of her zebra totes to one lucky Inside Out reader. Check out the Haute Lunch site, come back and tell me what must have bag style you must have. Get extra entries by grabbing my badge and/or blogging about this contest and all (remember to leave the link in comments as well).
