31 Days to a More Functional Home- Organizing Lunch Supplies

Hi there, and welcome back to our 31 day series on creating better function in our homes.

For Day 3, I focused my attention on our lunch packing supplies. I have four kids and a husband to pack lunches for, so it’s vital that everything be organized and accessible to speed up the process.

Again I visited the Dollar Tree and grabbed a few supplies.

The second basket holds our bento boxes and lids and paper lunch bags that we use for keeping snacks separate from lunch boxes.


The supplies fit nicely in a designated shelf right above the counter space where I make lunches. Their four water bottles fit right next to the baskets. The lunch boxes themselves are the only things that I can’t fit right in the cupboard, but they have a designated drawer nearby.

Super easy, super cheap, and so much less stress in the morning. Would you like to set up something similar?

  • Clear baskets that fit in standard cupboards: Dollar Tree

Yesterday was our anniversary, so I am actually posting Day Three (lunch station) and Day Four (organizing medication) on the same day. Hope to see you soon!
