No matter what kind of lunch eater you are, having the right tools for packing your lunch can be the difference between a great meal and another #saddesklunch. Let's be honest, soggy salad greens are basically the worst. That's why we found five products that make packing lunch an actually enjoyable experience. Here are problem-solving containers for the salad eater, soup lover, meal prepper, snacker and sandwich fan.

BUY IT: Portable Bento Lunch Box, Amazon, $25.99

If you're the ultimate meal prepper, this carryall speaks your language. We found enough space to pack three full meals and an afternoon snack. Plus, the bento boxes come with a convenient insulated carrying case for toting a day's-worth of food to the office.

BUY IT: Joseph Joseph GoEat Soup Pot, Macy's, $20

Ever wish bringing all your favorite toppings for creamy tomato soup or chili to work was simpler than a smushed plastic bag at the bottom of your lunchbox? This portable soup container from Joseph Joseph has a separate compartment for toppings that keeps everything fresh and whole while you microwave the liquid. Pro tip: The empty container stashes up even smaller for easy storage.

BUY IT: OXO Salad Container, Amazon, $17.99

It's no secret that keeping spring mix greens bright and crunchy is a challenge for even the most experienced salad packer. This container solves your soggy greens issue by compartmentalizing your toppings and dressing into seperate, spillproof (we tested it!) sections that pack neatly into any work bag.

BUY IT: Sistema Colorful Klip It Sandwich Box, The Container Store, $3.99 each

It's truly the worst when your peanut butter and jelly sandwich is ruined under the apple in your lunch bag. These containers are sized to fit your standard homemade sandwich and will protect it during even the roughest commute.

BUY IT: Zebra Stainless Steel Food Carrier, Amazon, $29.28

We get it. Sometimes a full day is snacks is just the way to go. If you want portion control and variety, this is the ideal food carrier. The three metal compartments fit snugly together and lock in place for easy transport.
