Keep Your Lunch Fresh and Cool with the PackIt Personal Cooler Lunch Bag - Review & Giveaway - Ends 4/7


I have worried about my boys heading off to college three days each week.  Why? Because they were not eating right while they are there.  They just took a few fruit bars with them, and that's all they ate the whole day.  They came home totally cranky!

Two of those days they are there for 11 hours total, and that means two meals - lunch and dinner.  We do have a few small coolers that they can take their lunch in, but with all the ice packs needed, and the size of two of them, they just didn't want to take them.  "Too much to lug around, Mom." or "We will have to get a locker at the gym to store this thing in, and we don't go near the gym all day!" Then when I insisted they take it, they told me, "The sandwiches were warm. We didn't want to get food poisoning so we threw them away." 


Was I ever lucky that I was contacted by PackIt to do a review of their Original Foldable, Freezable Lunch Bags.  PackIt was so very generous by sending each of my college sons a Personal Cooler Lunch Bag each.

PackIt Personal Cooler Lunch Bags are different from what you find elsewhere.  With these lunch bags you get 360 degrees of cooling.  There is patented freezable gel-liner that can keep your lunch cool – for up to 10 hours!  These gel packs are permanently built right into the liner of the bag.  There is no need to add any extra ice packs.  They are PVC/lead-free, non-toxic, earth-safe, and reusable.



So easy to use!  Just fold them, and pop them in the freezer for at least 12 hours, and these little personal coolers will keep item cool for almost 10 hours.  These bags are an ample size for one person measuring 8” x 10” x 5” (8” x 5” x 2” folded).   My boys pack their lunch at 6am, and eat at noon, and their lunch is fresh, cool, and safe to eat.   They still eat their fruit bars in the evening - they really love those, but they do eat at 7pm after their last class.



To ensure that your food stays fresh and cool, and to keep the bag shut, there are two places where Velcro seals the bag, under the flap and at the tab.  They are easy to clean.  Just hand wash with a mild soap and water, and let dry with the flap open.


My boys are totally happy with their navy blue and gray lunch packs, ho hum, but these personal lunch coolers do come in a variety of exciting colors.  I personally love the one on the right above.



Do you worry, like I did, that your or your loved one's lunch bag just isn't keeping their food cool and safe to eat?  Stop your worrying and get a PackIt Personal Cooler Lunch Bag.  One of these lunch bags sell for only $19.99.  That is a small cost compared to how much you can save by packing your own lunch.  Did you know that a person can save nearly $100,000 over a 30 year career by just packing a lunch and not eating out.  That's a savings!
