Reason for this blog

Hi there, my name is Georgina and I am a 30 something living in England, with a craving for saving money, reducing waste and enjoying a good lunch everyday at work. I get bored with the same foods everyday, want something healthier to fill me up and want to enjoy what I am eating.

I did a lot of research on the internet and discovered the Bento craze. It fit perfectly with the types of food I love to eat. So, I went on the hunt for a lunch box. I looked everywhere and didnt find anything I liked, then a friend Lesle linked me to the Goodbyn lunch boxes that she had purchased for her kids. I fell in love with them.

Okay, theyre designed for children - but hey, I dont care! I love them just as much and the box is perfect for taking everything to work in one box, so easy. It also means less washing up and less waste too. Oooh and by not having packaging I am saving money too. Bonus!

I havent added the stickers to mine and as such it looks like a perfectly respectable lunch box, just with ears! :) I have a desire to eat better during the week and as such have started this blog for a couple of reasons - (1) to encourage me to try different things for lunch and avoid getting stuck in the same routine and (2) to share my ideas with others. When I googled the goodbyn there was hardly any lunch ideas out there specifically to fill up this cute box.

I hope to change all that! Wish me luck! :)

  1. G, we're starting our 5th week of packing lunches. I'm so proud, I've never kept up with anything this long! LOL

    My lunch box isn't as cool as the kids, but I'm hoping to get my own Mr. Bento as a birthday gift for myself next month.

    Four weeks is almost 20 days, so I have some catching up to do on my bento blog, but I hope you can find at least a little bit of inspiration from it. And I'm looking forward to finding some new ideas from you too!
