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.

I really like the design of the Retro Reborn but I like the few extra inches in the large size totes. I would go for Berry Bliss in the Large size.
I am a mom to two children ages 2 and 1 and when we go out and about I need to take lots of stuff.

And yup, we save hundreds (if not thousands) of dollars by bringing lunch 6 out of 7 days (Sundays too for after church).
