Food and Storage Needs With Rubbermaid®

I am so excited to finally be able to share with you this new product that I have been using and loving, called Rubbermaid® fasten + go.  It is new and will be available at Target starting 12/27.  So far I only have one but I am marking my calendar so that I can buy a few more when they are finally available.  So what is it exactly?  Well there are 3 kits available – an entree kit, a soup kit and a sandwich kit. 

I have seen lunch kits before in the stores, but this one is different!  The Rubbermaid® fasten + go kits features:  

  • A removable carry strap that allows for easy transportation 
  • Smaller containers can be removed for customizable meals
  • Containers can be nested for compact storing
  • Lids snap to the base to allow for secure transportation
  • BPA-free, Microwave and Dishwasher Safe

So far I have only tried the sandwich kit, which consists of the following:

    • Base perfect for square or rectangular bread
    • 1 side container – 1 cup capacity
    • 2 snack containers – ½  cup capacity each
    • Outer lid
    • Removable strap

This is how the kit is packaged at the store, and it is really easy to open and close.

Sandwiches

First, I wanted to try it out for it’s intended purpose – sandwiches.  My husband often comes home to have lunch or he takes lunch with him.  Here is a simple and delicious sandwich with turkey, havarti cheese and avocado.

Note:  Avocado tends to oxidize pretty quickly, so I brush a little olive oil on the slices of avocado and that seems to keep the color.  I still haven’t found a method that will completely stop them from loosing their green color, but the olive oil seems to work even better than the lemon juice.

It ended up being a pretty thick sandwich.

But it still fit nicely inside the container.

Healthy Eating

If you are looking to start (or continue) eating healthy, the little containers are a great way to portion your sides or snacks.  Below, I placed a hard-boiled egg inside one small container, almonds in another and celery and hummus in the medium container.

For my boys I would serve a similar lunch, minus the avocado.  I added a small portion of miniature cookies and some veggies with ranch dip.

Sewing Kit

Of course the organizer in me took over and I started finding other uses for the fasten + go kit.  Here I set up a little sewing kit.  This is great for those of us that can’t sew very well, but need to hem some pants or add a button here and there.

Jewelry Kit

A jewelry kit!  I recently went on a cruise and all my necklaces were tangled with the earrings by the time that I unpacked.  When I place them inside the kit, they each have a separate compartment and I love that!

For now, I will use mine for lunches but as soon as they are released in January I will buy a few extras for organizing items around the house.  The kits are available in 3 colors – smoke grey, seafoam green (mine) and marsala red.  I think I will buy the grey ones for storage and another seafoam green for our lunches.

Do you make lunches for yourself or your family?  Do you have a tip for keeping avocados green?  Help a girl out.
