When you were a kid how did you carry your lunch to school: lunchbox, brown paper bag, washable cloth bag, did you buy your lunch or something else?

let's see, lunchboxes were: GLOworms, little miss piggy (oh the irony kate), holly hobby. i loved the way the box smelled when you opened it after rotting in your locker half a day.

once in a while i bought. it was a treat. it was a dollar. 75 cents for lunch 25 cents for ice cream.

Brown paper bagged it.

ET lunch box through 2nd grade, then switched to paper.

Brown bag about 99% of the time from kindergarten to senior year of high school. Yes my mom packed it, and she had a set schedule. It varied but I'm pretty sure I had a bagel and yogurt every monday for 13 years.

Mom had an obnoxious yet sweet habit of throwing a peanut butter & honey sandwich (in a plastic sandwich bag)in my backpack with out telling me. So two days later after it had slid to the bottom of the bag & been smashed by math & english books, I would wonder why my notebook was sticky. Then I'd discover the gooey mess at the bottom of my backpack.

None of the above. We were given lunch everyday.

Brown bag, then around the time people just starting getting blue recycling bins in my town, I got a cloth bag which I used through HS. I never bought, except in HS when I could get an undercooked chocolate chip cookie for 25 cents!
