With school right around the corner, or even started for some, lunch seems to be on everyone’s mind. So much so that my cohost Lynnae and I did an entire episode of Frugal Coast2Coast this week on “Packing a Lunch” (available as a podcast now).
So there are two things going on here-a microsite with a lunchbox builder where you can enter the giveaway for the Lunchbox Pack & print coupons, and then the Lunchbox Pack giveaway here on Frugal Upstate.
The “Lunchbox Builder” is a nifty little site where you can create your own virtual lunchbox design and then upload it to the lunchbox gallery to be viewed and voted on. The highest rated lunchboxes will receive a Back to School Lunchbox Pack just like the one I am giving away here. I decided to try the builder out, and Princess came in while I was working on it. “oooh!” she says, “Can I try that too?” Kids love making things, even virtually! Here is the lunchbox I came up with:
There are also some good coupons to print out on the lunchbox builder site-but those will eventually run out, so the the sooner you print, the better!
This lunchbox pack can help you prepare for more than just lunch-it’s more of a “school” prep pack. At a value of approximately $150 it’s worth an entry! The prize pack includes:
- An iPod Shuffle (2nd Generation)
- An insulated lunchbox
- Sharpie pens in multiple colors
- Colored Pencils
- A Smuckers Uncrustables Container
- An Optical Mouse
- A Smuckers Belt Pack
- A Motts Reusable Shopping Bag
- A Smuckers Strawberry
- A Walmart Gift Card
- A Combination Lock
- A Pedometer
In addition, the winner will be receiving 5 Labels for Education, worth 10,000 points each, which can be used by your child’s school!
