I used to work at an office and during lunch breaks we had to walk a good amount of distance to reach the nearest lunch place. After a few weeks, I started bringing my own lunch just because it is more convenient.
Being a person who always thinks about design (which is also required in my work), it had me thinking about getting a nicely designed minimalist lunch bag. So I did some looking around, and curated a list of the 10 best minimalist lunch bags or lunch boxes you can bring to your office, picnics or even travel adventures.
