As summer ends and we head into fall, it's time to start thinking about ways to upgrade your lunch routine — after all, busier schedules make getting organized more important than ever. If you've been using the same worn and potentially broken containers for years (we all have those stained containers and extra lids hanging around!), it might be time to for a refresh.

This holds especially true for all salad fans. When it comes to enjoying a homemade salad for lunch, effective packing is key. These products will keep your salad setup organized and fresh — because no one wants soggy greens come noon.


If you're looking for a container that is as pleasant to transport as it is to eat out of, we recommend this Porter bowl. While the seal isn't leakproof (the company recommends transporting this one upright), the fact that you can enjoy your salad out of a proper bowl with a wide opening makes up for it.

If you like your salad packed with juicy ingredients, you know how frustrating it is when all that flavor leaks into your bag during the day. Luckily, this leakproof container, which also has separate compartments for toppings and dressing, promises to solve that problem.

Mason jars are the perfect vehicle to store your dressing, toppings and other extras, but after months of putting those jars through the dishwasher, the metal lids can start to rust. Avoid buying new lids every season with these plastic alternatives. Thanks to this multi-colored pack, you can choose a different hue for each day of the work week.
