This is great! I'm just about to do packed lunches for the first time - my kids have always had school dinners but I'm making the change and this is a great way of getting started. Thanks!

Great article - I love the cubbies in the fridge. I use the same concept in the freezer since we prepare all the kids lunches on Sunday night for the week....radical - but it works! http://www.tinyurl.com/botschoollunch

I love the Itso bins in the fridge. I buy them every time they are on special. This year I am sending two kids off to school (sniff) and am making the change from school dinners to nearly all packed (with the odd school dinner thrown in). I have planned out 7 lunchbox menus and I am just going to rotate through. That way I can plan my grocery shopping accordingly and make their lunches the night before. I might add your organising system to mine and see how it goes!

My oldest (DD 10) is fussy and will only eat raw veggies (no fruit) so at supper I have to get out the Tupperware storage containers with the veggies to put some on a plate for her and while I'm doing that I cut up veggies for both the girls' lunches.
Then after supper I just have to make sandwichs, grab treats and juice. In the morning throw it together with a yogurt and an ice pack.
My other tip is make lunches at night not in the morning. I find then I'm not rushed to make them and can help the girls if they need anything. Or just chat with them or break up any fights.

Thanks everyone for your comments! I've been using my refrigerator bin this week and love it! My son wanted to buy lunch today but then he said "Oh, but the lunches you've been making me are so great...I think I'd rather bring." Hooray! Healthier choice all day long. :)

Good luck with your lunch-making endeavors.

School starts in NY on Wednesday and today I put together some lunch bins. In the fridge...gogurt, grapes in snack bags and cheese sticks. In the pantry one for pears, applesauce and peaches and one for snack bags of preztel sticks, goldfish and mini triscuits (love those)

I already have a drawer at the island where I make the lunches that has brown bags, and plastic silverware.
