Packing a lunch is one of the smallest, easiest ways to save money and eat healthier during the week. But just in case you need a little more motivation to prep your food at home, we've rounded up the best reusable containers and accessories you can buy right now. Best of all? Everything's under $45.


First thing first: You'll need a cute and quality lunch box. We recommend the Bentgo Deluxe Tote, which has two spacious compartments for all of your food. (Plus external pockets for utensils and napkins.) The Bentgo is also completely insulated, equipped with a top handle and an adjustable shoulder strap, comes in 10 colors and helps support Feed The Children.

Nothing will encourage you to stay hydrated throughout the day like a pretty and personalized water bottle. The inner chamber is made from stainless steel — which will keep your drink cool — while the exterior is wrapped in silicone to prevent condensation. And thanks to its slender silhouette, this lovely bottle will easily fit in your cupholder or bag.

When in doubt, skip the plastic utensils and go straight for this reusable cutlery set. Each piece is crafted from stainless steel and nests perfectly inside the terrazzo carrying case. You can also choose from three other stylish colors.

If you haven't heard of Stasher sandwich and snack bags yet, prepare to be impressed. Unlike plastic and paper quart bags, Stasher products are dishwasher safe and can be used over and over again. They also boast a Pinch-Loc seal to keep your food fresh for hours. Best of all? Part of the sales from every Stasher bag goes directly to environmental nonprofits.

For your morning commute or afternoon walk, we highly recommend these reusable snack pouches from ZipTop. Each piece is crafted from silicone and features an innovative flat base to help it stand upright. In turn, you can easily keep these snack pouches in your cupholder or on your desk. They're perfect for granola, nuts, fruit slices, etc.

Now, this is what we call a convenient container. Get your daily dose of fruits and vegetables with this Mepal To-Go Cup. The piece is outfitted with a colander and stainless fork, so you can rinse and drain your food, then immediately enjoy it. And yep! The reusable cup is dishwasher-safe.

If individually wrapped portions aren't your thing, then allow us to introduce you to the modern bento box. Inspired by traditional Japanese containers — which usually hold a single serving of rice, meat and cooked vegetables — this version uses a divider and top tray to store food neatly. And since you won't have to purchase a new box of sandwich bags every other week, you'll save time and money.

Here's a bento box that will inspire you to get creative with your salads. You can fill the lower compartment with leafy greens, then load the top tray with chopped vegetables, nuts and other garnishes. A lid snaps everything in place. And yep! The stacking container is dishwasher-safe.

Sometimes a sandwich or salad is better with soup. Luckily, you can get your fix with this Fewoo Insulated Thermos. The container is made from food-grade stainless steel and features double-wall vacuum insulation so your liquid will stay piping hot. The inner lid even includes a foldable spoon, so you don't have to pack an extra utensil.

Show your leftovers some love and cover them in sustainable Bee's Wrap. You'll start by holding a sheet in your hands, folding it over your food and then pressing gently to create a seal. (Read: No plastic wrap or aluminum foil required.) When you're all done, just hand wash the wrap in the sink.
