If you’re a grown-up with a lunchbox, what do you really do with it? Do you actually use it to take your quinoa salad to work? Or does your metal lunchbox just sit there, displayed, but lonely and empty on a shelf, unable to relate to any of your knick-knacks?

Put your lunchbox on double-duty. Make it functional as well as eye-catching.

    1. Use one to store some desk supplies as shown here: pens, post-its, index cards and tabs. Simply close the lid to avoid tempting those pesky supply gremlins from helping themselves.

    2. Keep your stationery, stamps and stickers together so you can easily locate those birthday cards with the flip of a latch. You won’t procrastinate as much when everything is in one place ready to mail out (after the obligatory insertion of a check or a gift card).

    4. What kid doesn’t want to bring toys along on any car ride, be it to a doctor’s appointment or to Grandma’s house? Keep those action figures from wandering in public. Park those toy cars in a lunchbox garage.
