I haven't done this (yet) but I've read that people use "Saran Wrap" (TM),
not wax paper.

I haven't done this either (yet) but I've read that people use plastic
containers that seal well (like Rubbermaid), put water and vegies in in the
morning, allowing them to rehydrate during the day for eating in the
afternoon or evening.
