10 Lunch Boxes With No Disney Characters On Them

Browse any store during back-to-school season and you'll see that most lunch boxes for kids (some 95 percent?) are emblazoned with Disney or other cartoon characters on them. Maybe you're starting to reach peak level for all things Frozen? Or maybe you're just worried your kid will move on and, come November, refuse to carry anything with Elsa or Olaf on it. (Hey, it could happen!)

That's why we've rounded up 10 adorable lunch boxes — without Disney characters on them. And maybe, just maybe, your kid will agree to use it for more than just one school year. Here's hoping. Read it on The Kitchn

10 Awesome Farmhouse Finds from Magnolia

Texas-based husband-and-wife team Chip and Joanna Gaines might be best known for their HGTV series, Fixer Upper — where they fix up decrepit old homes, always adding their signature farmhouse style — but among other projects they also own Magnolia Market, a store that sells wares that perfectly embody the couple's design aesthetic.

While we typically prefer our old, farmhouse-y finds to actually be old (and not faux old), we usually make exceptions for dining and entertaining stuff. And these items from Magnolia Market are all worth a second glance. Read it on The Kitchn

Cinema Light Box 

When you were in college, you coveted the light up signs that were at the shitty bars you used to frequent. And even after you grew up and realized that a self-respecting 30-year-old can't have a Bud Light Lime sign hanging in her apartment, your magpie self never quite grew out of liking bright lights.  Enter the Cinema Light Box ($50, Huckberry), a mature way to inject a little light-up action in your home. It comes with 100 letters, numbers, and characters so you can switch out the messaging to your heart's content, and—unlike similar lightboxes and signs—it runs on batteries, so you don't have to hide an unsightly cord when you mount it on the wall.

8 Best Beer Growlers on the Market

Craft beer used to be something only your weird brother-in-law was interested in, but over the past five years or so, its popularity has reached a fever pitch. Today, everyone knows the difference between a pilsner and an IPA. Local breweries are popping up all over the country and have replaced the typical bars as the cool place to hang out.

Access to craft beer is better than ever. You no longer have to trudge to a specialty market in search of something more adventurous than Blue Moon—your local grocery store now carries a dizzying array of craft selections that will make your father stand in the well-stocked aisles and ask, “Whatever happened to good, old-fashioned Budweiser?,” not knowing that half of the craft brews on the shelves he maligns are owned by Budweiser (sorry to ruin the narrative, Dad). Many stores have even put in draft lines specifically for craft beer fans to fill up their growlers; and of course, brewpubs and breweries do the same. It’s why your friends show up to parties with growlers full of craft beer instead of the case of Miller Lite they used to arrive with. Want to invest in your own growler so you can share your love of craft beer with other people (not your Dad, though)?  Check out our list of the 8 best growlers on the market to cart your precious beer around in.

Collapsible Laundry Basket 

When you were growing up, presumably not in a big city, having a washer and dryer in your home wasn't considered a badge of honor or a sign that you "MADE IT," it was just a normal thing that literally everyone had. But then you moved to the city, and after having to lug 30 pounds of laundry to the laundromat, you realized that having a washer and dryer IN-UNIT was a sign that you made it.

Truth: if you live in New York City and have a washer and dryer in your actual apartment (I'm not talking about the creepy shared washer and dryers that populate a decent amount of New York's apartment buildings), it means that what you're paying in rent is an amount that would make the folks back home keel over and die, ergo, YOU'VE MADEEEEEEEE ITTTTTTT, even if it's the world's smallest washer and dryer set that can only handle a pillow case, a t-shirt, and one sock at a time.

That said, just because you have this precious amenity that people across all five boroughs would kill for doesn't mean you live in a palace. New York City apartments—even when tricked out with basic amenities—are small. That's why this Collapsible Laundry Basket ($40) is perfect for small spaces like your fancy ass (still miniscule) apartment.  It folds out to full size, but collapses flat so you can shove it wherever you have room for it (virually nowhere, but that's YOUR PROBLEM).
