Today’s holiday is Pack Your Lunch Day: a day to say “no” to going out for lunch, and instead bring it in from home. It’s obviously cheaper, and most times, it’s healthier, too.
Growing up, I usually brought my lunch to school in a lunch box like every other kid. By the time I was in 5th grade or so, lunch boxes had sorta gone out of fashion in favor of the simpler (though more wasteful) brown bag method. Pretty soon, it was just too much to remember to pack anything, so by the time I was in junior high I bought my lunch at the cafeteria just about every day.
Despite eventually abandoning bringing my own lunch to school, I do remember two of the lunch boxes I has as a kid, and I found them both on Etsy (I had the Smurf and Holly Hobbie boxes)! I can guarantee my friends had a few of the other featured boxes, like the Hulk and Peanuts. Take a stroll through the featured shops, since many of them have other vintage treasures that will bring back memories! And remember to click here for my other Every Day is a Holiday treasuries!

“Every Day is a Holiday” is my Etsy Treasury project for 2014. I’m hoping to find unique and beautiful items that exemplify the holiday of the day—the sillier and weirder, the better! What’s better than finding something worth celebrating each and every day?
