DIY Lunchbox Icepacks:

The essential to every healthy lunch box is a good ice pack.  How else would you keep those fruits and veggies fresh?  DIY Lunchbox Icepacks are the perfect creation because they are both cheap and easy to make.  Buy a few sponges from your local dollar store, soak them in water and then place them in a ziplock bag.  When they thaw, the sponge absorbs the water.  Talk about easy!
