Today, like most days, we brought our lunch to the office. Brown-bagging it is easier on our wallets and our waistlines, so we are all for it. Plus, it gives us an excuse to purchase loads of cute lunch bags. Exhibit A:
These are by Built and can be purchased here and at loads of retail department stores. Also, Muffy Martini featured the cutest monogrammed lunch bag on her blog yesterday. We are dying for it!
We suggest you also pack a real cloth napkin and keep a place setting and a set of flatware in your desk, so that even if you have to eat lunch at your desk (sigh), you can at least do it in style.
Finally, if you share an office, be considerate to your office-mates by either keeping stinky foods to a minimum, taking them to the break room or asking those in the room if they mind your twice a week date with Starkist.
Most importantly, be sure to clean up before and after yourself, so that if you eat at your desk or a shared desk, you aren’t spreading bacteria and germs. Also, dispose of that tuna can or other “fragrant” trash in a can in the break room or otherwise away from the office area to avoid smelly garbage.
