Let's talk lunch! We may homeschool but one of the best #momhacks I learned last year was to prep as much as I can the night before! Seems easy enough, right, but it has been a total gamechanger! We can usually breeze through school in the morning, the kids can grab their lunch and we can pick up right where we left off when they're done.


1.bento box ($14.90) - We have these in three different colors: blue, green and lavender! They come with four compartments and what we call a little treat circle in the middle. Comes with a lid, utensils and than another lid on top. We absolutely love these! They are safe for the microwave as well as dishwasher.
2. dino ice pack ($4) - Not just a lunch necessity over here! These little refreezeable ice packs are great for boo boos, fevers, etc. They freeze to a solid block and than slowly defrost to a more squishy feel.
3. lunchbox ($10) - I'm going to call myself out here because no, we don't actually use lunchboxes. I usually just make their lunch in the bento BUT if we were to use lunchboxes, this is one we'd definitely use!
4. water bottle ($11.99) - I can't find our original water bottle anywhere (it's kind of old) but I love these Funtainers from Thermos! They're stainless steel, 12 ounces and have a handle!
5. thread mama lunch notes (patreon) - I'm SO obsessed with Thread Mama's printables! I subscribed to her Patreon for $2 a month and can download and print out as many things as I want. She recently came out with these back to school tags and notes and I'm so in love with them!

What's your favorite back-to-school mom hack?
