There are people who are really good at packing their lunch every day, but many of us fall somewhere along the spectrum of "will do it reluctantly" to "will inevitably end up running to Pret three times a week."

Whether you never pack lunch or are just looking to step up your game, here are eight easy tips that are way too good not to use, even as adults.
