Back to School Shopping

Growing up, I always looked forward to going back to school and loved back to school shopping. Picking out trapper-keepers, pencil boxes, Crayola markers, and of course an outfit to wear on the first day of school. Nowadays, back to school shopping is slightly less fun and much more expensive, considering it mostly consists of buying costly textbooks.

But there some "fun" things I still need to get. I am thinking of getting a new lunchbox because I bring my lunch everyday. Here are a few options I am scouting out:

Option 1: Gourmet Getaway Neoprene Lunch Bag
Pros: Cute, machine washable, rolls up to save space, and keeps food hot or cold so I do not have to risk putting things in the law school fridge.
Cons: Still requires plastic bags/Gladware to store food.
Price: Moderately expensive ($25)

Option 2: Plastica Bento Box
Pros: Provides organization, taps into my Asian heritage, cute, cuts down on waste because no wrapping for food needed.
Cons: Too bulky to put in bag, requires refrigeration in the black hole law school fridge, not microwavable.
Price: Expensive ($38)

Option 3: Nintendo Lunch Box (Click on link to get instructions on how to make!)
Pros: Would be the coolest lunchbox in the cafeteria, homemade, sturdy
Cons: No more playing Duck Hunt or Paperboy.
Price: Minimal
