We’ve read numerous reports about how bringing your lunch to work is not only healthierÂ but also more economical.Â A 2012 report cited that the average American worker spends almost $15 per week on coffee. But I am not here to count your coins. In fact, the only thing I am here to do is inspire you to brown bag it simply because the lunch box has evolved.Â Gone are the days of cartoon themed lunchboxes featuring Dora, the Explorer or images of Alvin and The Chipmunks!
