8 Food Containers You Won’t Be Embarrassed to Put in Your Work Fridge
Put an end to soggy brown bags and that leaky blue container with the red lid
We don’t know about you, but it’s tough enough forcing ourselves to prepare lunch the night before work without the added hassle of finding a container with a matching lid. Food storage constantly looks old fast, is clunky to carry around, and let’s face it, is pretty ugly. And it’s not like only you will see it, because when you get to work, you have to shove it in a packed fridge surrounded by your co-workers’ delicious looking takeout meals or perfectly organized bentos.
So if you (like us) need a major lunch refresh, we have some good news—there are tons of cute options that’ll have you excited to pack a week’s worth of meals. Scroll through our nine favorites below.
Dial Food Storage Container
- Amazon, $9
A dial lets you date the contents so you know your food is fresh (and so do your co-workers).
Savor the Scenery Container Set
- ModCloth, $40
Warning: These are so cute they may be stolen. Luckily, they come in a set of five just in case you “lose” one.
Stackable Lunch Pot
- UncommonGoods, $25
These two containers (plus super cute spork) strap together to store your oatmeal and fruit or soup and crackers. Plus, the vertical storage takes up less room. Win-win.
4-Cup Glass Food Storage with Silicone Sleeve
- Bed Bath & Beyond, $20
The bright-colored silicone sleeve distinguishes this glass storage from all the rest of the sad over-used plastic stuff.
Erasable Food Storage Labels
Keep track of what you packed, write your name, or just scribble a massive “do not take” on the front. Your call.
Pyrex Food Storage Container
- Target, $6
We know Pyrex is everyone’s (from yours to your grandma’s) go-to food container, but this new iteration has a fun dot pattern that feels fresh.
Large Green Collapsible Silicone Lunch Box
For those of us with tiny apartments (and little to no storage), this genius container can be compressed when it’s not being used.
Black + Blum Lunch Box Books
- Fab, $36
Yes, these keep your food safe and sound, but we’re obsessed with how inconspicuous they’ll look in our totes.
