10 Office Food Hacks that Will Instantly Upgrade Your Desk Lunch

Lukewarm macaroni salad? A Nature Valley bar that’s hard as rocks? A bag of leftover potato chips on its way to stale city? There’s no justifiable reason you should be settling for a mediocre office lunch.


Protip: Create a circle in the middle of your mac salad to reheat it in the microwave faster and more evenly. While you’re at it, heat up that Nature Valley bar for a few seconds to prevent it from crumbling into a hot mess onto your keyboard. That half-eaten bag of chips? Seal it with pen clip to keep it fresh and crunchy.

Watch the video above to learn more office food hacks that will improve the quality of your desk eats. Lunchtime will never be the same.

    Who the hell heats up macaroni salad?

    To seal those half-eaten bags of chips, we use binder clips. It’s easier.

    If we can’t find a binder clip, we’ll wrap a rubber band around the bag.
