Lunch outside of the house is a reality for students and working folks, but there are days when dinner on the run is a necessity, too. When I’m traveling or have a late-evening meeting, I try to plan ahead and pack a little something. And it’s much easier to do with these stylish totes and boxes.

From old-fashioned enamel boxes to stacking lunch pots with separate sections, these picks fit every budget and style preference. Packing a dinner is convenient and will save you money in the long run, yes, but I also appreciate the deliberate thought that goes into it. You plan and prepare a meal ahead of time to fit the restrictions of your schedule: a sure guarantee that it’s going to taste all the better for it.
