[Disclaimer: I was sent two Planetbox Shuttle boxes and bags for review]
I've coveted the Planetbox systems ever since I first laid eyes on them. Something about the compartmentalized stainless steel is like a siren call to my inner bentonatrix! The price can be a deterrent, but if you think about it, long-term they're a great investment! Not only are you saving money by not having to keep replacing broken or lost plastic boxes and lids, but you're also avoiding all the health issues from potentially harmful chemicals that are released by even some of the "safe" plastics! And of course packing in any compartmentalized lunchbox system has the benefits of saving money and avoiding waste from all the disposable bags; encouraging healthy eating from packing a variety, built-in portion-control, and avoiding convenience food options!

While I love our Rovers, and jealously covet a Launch, the Planetbox Shuttle is the perfect size for a large snack, or for a regular-sized lunch for my little pipsqueaks!

Other than the general shininess and undefinable lure of the Planetboxes, one of my favorite things is that the lid compartments are raised so that I can pack high with fun picks or details. And they're attached, so I never have to worry about them getting separated and frantically search for a matching lid and bottom! And did I mention they're dishwasher safe? What's not to love?
