Designer Lunch Tote Giveaway

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on January 11, 2009

ADORABLE!!! How cute are these??? These brand new designer lunch totes from Spring Los Angeles are not only stylish, they can help you save $$$ too! Any guesses on how much money you would save by taking your own lunch to work? Or going on a picnic with your kiddos instead of eating out or driving through?

Once a week we have to eat lunch in the car, as my oldest’s occupational therapy appointment ends before I can get him on the bus for school. So I drive him to school and we eat in the car. This would be the PERFECT tote for our lunch!

So, you don’t have to be a working mom to want one of these fabulous lunch totes! Perhaps you know a working mom who is in need of an “upgrade” on their lunch tote and could pass it along as a gift. Perhaps your wife is often out and about town during the week and would like to not eat out so much. Whoever you are and whatever your sitch, these totes are FAB!

1 lucky winner will get to choose their own tote as the grand prize

AND 3 winners will receive 50% off coupon codes for use on any of the totes at Spring Los Angeles.

These are great! We eat out way too much when we are out doing errands. This might do the trick! I like the Large Lunch Tote-Classic Kate. I’m have a family full of boys so blue is always good! Cindy

I like to have the berry bliss. I take my lunch to work (school) every day and I go through the lunch bags. At the present I take my lunch in a grocery sack! I’m in need of a new bag, and this pink one would be great!


Anonymous January 12, 2009 at 2:33 pm

I love your blog! I’d use the tote to bring my lunch to work; I’m a faithful brown-bagger, but I’ll be “upgrading” my look if I win. I “twittered” about your contest/blog today.

I love the “retro reborn” tote; hope I win!


Leah January 12, 2009 at 2:40 pm

If I had to choose just one I think I would go for the Berry Bliss. It is just to cute.


Mom Of Faith January 12, 2009 at 2:45 pm

The Berry Bliss Bag is just too yummy! I don’t work outside the home..but my little girl would look too cute carrying this to school. And I love that it’s made out of recycled materials!


CrystalGB January 12, 2009 at 2:52 pm

I would love this! I pack my lunch every day and the velcro is beginning to peal off of my lunchbox (from high school–10 years ago!). I would choose the Berry Bliss.

The totes are very cute. Much better than the plastic Walmart bag I usually end up tossing my food is as I rush out the door. The Berry Bliss is definitely me!

cajungal01 January 12, 2009 at 6:55 pm

I like the hot pink striped one. It was a tough call between the pink and the polk-a-dot blue but I always have at least 2 kiddos with me and I also bring extra food in case my preschoolers need something at lunch time…so large is probably the way to go! :0)

These lunch bags are darling. I am trying to save money this year by packing my lunch daily for work instead of eating out. The lunch box would be wonderful to have when fixing my lunch. I have told all my family and friends to go to your site for meal ideas and to enter. I like the berry bliss on. Tamie
