any suggestions

I need to carry on my stock bike with no saddlebags or a rack or trunk 3 half gallon bottles of water and my lunch each day. Anyone have a suggestion. I have thought about a backpack. I have thought about welding a rack and putting it on back and putting a plastic milk crate on it.

Any ideas, or ways already thought of to help me in this will be great.

Grace and Peace to you!

For ease of use I'd use a backpack. Keeps everything where you put it and you can take it in with you wherever you go.

Three half gallons of water will weigh about 12 pounds. Maybe with your lunch it won't be too heavy for a backpack unless your lunch consists of a couple of watermelons
