Making sandwiches and packing them into disposable bags was something I’ve been doing for some time. It’s a quick and simple healthy lunch especially for those who with busy schedules. Just as you are finishing your lunch and packing things up into your lunchbox, you will look back and see what can be salvaged. Definitely the lunch box itself, the steel utensils, the water bottle, and maybe some leftover snacks (if any).
Now what has to go? Definitely that used napkin and condiment packet. That sandwich bags though….hmm. If it is still super clean, maybe. But if soiled, probably not. Into the trash bin it goes right? Or maybe you are frugal and thinking about washing it? Sounds like more of a hassle with the bag sticking together, difficult to open, water trapped inside, etc. Probably not worth the effort!
Anyways, this sandwich lunch routine goes on for a couple weeks and then you find yourself one morning out of disposable bags! Running of options, you would probably use plastic wrap. Hopefully no juices from the vegetables or meat drip out of it!
So now you find yourself having to stock up on disposable bags. I mean, it is part of your grocery shopping routine so no big deal right? But what if there is a kind out there where you CAN actually keep reusing? And not have to worry about the hassle?
Reusable Disposable Bags

You can purchase reusable silicone food storage bags. These “disposable bags” are like flexible Tupperware! Quite durable like a regular Tupperware but Tupperware can take up a lot of space and are not flexible. The storage bags are flexible but not as soft as a sandwich bag where your sandwich can get squashed easily. It’s a fine balance between the 2 types of containers!
What is great about this reusable silicone food storage bag is that it is made of silicone and can tolerate some extreme temperatures. This means that they can be kept in the freezer or put into the microwave. The bag can tolerate temperatures as low as -40 degrees F and as high as 450 degrees F.
When in the opened state, it will stay in place. This gives you the opportunity to pour certain foods in. A regular disposable bag will not be able to do that.
If you are someone who packs sandwiches for lunch, having to keep stocking up on disposable lunch bags can be a hassle. Fortunately, there are products like the silicone food storage bags where you can use over and over again. You can keep using until it wears down one day but that will not be anytime soon!
I guess the only real hassle is having to wash them but good thing they can be thrown in the dishwasher! If you ever do get tired of sandwiches, there are many great and even healthy options for you out there to purchase also! Other than that, hope this product can help make your lunch life a bit easier.
