Packit - Way Better Than a Brown Bag!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of PackIt for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

My kids always took their lunches to school.  Except when Beth got into high school and decided she was 'too good' to take her lunch - or maybe just too lazy to  pack it - but that's another story.  What I did not know at the time is that those ice packs we used to keep their lunches cold only last 2 hours.  Maybe they lasted a bit longer in the  insulated lunch sacks we used, but they definitely weren't cold when the kids came home at the end of a school day, and if anything was leftover from lunch I didn't feel comfortable keeping it for another day.  Was the food in their lunches really not cold enough by lunch time?  Thankfully nobody got sick, but  these PackIt lunch boxes would have been so much better.

The entire Packit folds up and goes into the freezer, and the bag itself is the ice pack.  That means everything you put into it is completely surrounded, and it stays cold for 10 hours - meaning through lunch time and through the entire school day.  Like they show in the video, any leftovers can be refrigerated for another day, no doubting if they're still good.

Right now you can buy one Packit for $19.95 and get one FREE, so it's a good time to get some for yourself.  Start sending healthy lunches to school with your kids.  Take your own lunch to work, pack snacks for a car trip, take a picnic to the park.  These Packit bags could be handy any time you need to keep things cold on the go.  I may not have kids taking lunches to school any more, but I could sure use something like this for road trips.  Let me tell you, any time you can pack and take food from home instead of buying it at the convenience store or the fast food place, or even at school, you are going to save money!  

Let me know what you'd use PackIt lunch boxes for, and be sure to check out the Packit website to learn more and take advantage of this limited-time BOGO deal.
