Sustainable Living and Organization Tips

So yoooooo…. who else feels like they need to be ultra organized with kids?  Since it is nearly impossible to keep the toys together and clothes off of the floor, I have decided that the kitchen is going to be my place of ultimate organization and sustainability.  

Being sustainable is actually pretty easy to do nowadays because there are tons of different products out there that are really awesome.  Here are a few that I use on the regular, mainly for food storage.

Lunchbots:  I have LOVED these stainless steel lunch boxes since before I had kids.  I am still working with my first and only set and it has been 10 years!  I love stainless steel for a few reasons:

  1. It’s cute
  2. It doesn’t stain (duh!)
  3. It lasts forever
  4. It doesn’t break, bend, get mangled.
  5. You can put it in the dishwasher!!

That last one is KEY.  Less dishes is always the play for this family.

Planet Box:  These are newer for me, but have done really well so far.  All the same reasons I love these are above, but I find these to be better for older kids since you can fit more different options for meals.  Love that it comes with the extra little bowls for salads, dressing, and mini snacks.

Stasher bags:  My life would not be the same without these bad boys!!  These are perfect for storing everything.  We literally use these for everything, even non-food items like storing hair clips, elastics, crayons, etc.  Here is what I love about these:

  1. Cute colors
  2. Durable
  3. Fridge, freezer, microwave safe!  
  4. Convenient sizing
  5. Dishwasher safe!!

Storage Bins: I also store everything I can into clear plastic bins so things are easy to find in the pantry but also in the fridge to keep things clean, organized, and separated.

Thermos:  I love mixing up the lunches that the kids get. Warm foods are always good for the soul, so I love to use thermos jars. These come in a variety of kid-friendly colors!

Bamboo Cutlery:  I love that these little packs have everything that you would need to eat away from home.  My oldest especially since she loves to eat everything with a fork and knife.
