Glad about GLAD

As hard as dinner is, sometimes lunch is harder, especially when it has to be on-the-go. How do you put together home prepared, healthy, fresh lunches to eat on the road?

Well, you no longer have to pack only food that will fit in a sandwich baggie. With Glad To Go Lunch containers, you can take anything you like and have it fresh and ready to heat and eat.

The package comes in a set of 4 containers, and each bowl and lid are BPA-free.

Each container is 32 oz, so packing leftover dinner for lunch tomorrow works great. The containers fit a ton of food and with the signature Glad interlocking lids; they’re the perfect size and shape for stacking in the refrigerator overnight or until lunchtime.

When we’re taking lunch on the go in a backpack or diaper bag, we appreciate the super tight seal that locks in the freshness and prevents spills.  No more lunch-soaked diapers or books for us!

My very favorite thing about the To Go Lunch containers are the 1.5 oz. dressing cups that snap onto the undersides of the lids. Two containers, only one lid!! I wish all my food containers were like this… A conveniently separate-but-connected dressing container means NO MORE SOGGY SALAD! My life is complete.

As much as I love these tight-locking, stacking, dressing-friendly lunch containers, not all foods belong in a bowl. For all of those foods, there’s Glad Cling Wrap.

A sandwich belongs wrapped up tight in some Glad Cling Wrap where it will be safe from moisture sucking air. There’s nothing worse than a dried out sandwich except for a sandwich that has completely fallen apart. Cling Wrap is the perfect little sandwich straight jacket – all those tomatoes and avocado slices stay right where they should be until that sandwich is ready to fill your tummy.

Cling Wrap is also great for keeping lunch outside from feeding the neighborhood insect population. Glad Cling Wrap grips tight to keep the fresh and warm in and everything else out. It’s perfect for keeping food fresh and clean during a sunny day picnic.

Glad products are affordable, multi-purpose, and most importantly, reliable. I know my food is safe with Glad and that makes me…very glad.

We take our lunches every day because I always make enough dinner to have extra for the next day’s lunch. Part of cleaning the kitchen after dinner is making lunches and while the kitchen is in “cooking mode” (before it is cleaned for the evening) I start a crock pot too. I get it together and cover the crock with cling wrap to keep in the fridge overnight and then drop it in the cooker in the morning before I leave for work. This is a pretty good system for me because of the huge time saving aspect and not having to decide what to make for dinner after a long day. I use the disposable plastics for our lunches like the ones in your post too. One thing I like about them is that they hold up in the dishwasher pretty well even with a heated dry cycle (in the top rack). Today is beef rice with pot roast, mushrooms, onions & carrots from yesterday’s crock pot. Hubby and I prefer to have “yesterday’s dinner” because not only is it healthier for us, but with both of us working outside the home, we save a TON of money. Think of it – lunch runs around $8-$10 each, so $20 a day or $100 a week – $400 a month…or free. Which would you choose?
