I was planning on packing them into my own lunch since I work outside of the home. I don't plan on throwing anything out.

Re: Share your Bento Boxes!

I have been doing bento type lunches for the last week and I love it! I got a lock and lock type container at walmart but it isn't divided. I can fit a larger than dip size container inside if something needs separated until I can find some silicone baking cups. I haven't done anything really decorative but my kids are really liking them anyway!

Re: Share your Bento Boxes!

I can't wait to start packing bento lunches for my new kindergartner! He starts school Sept. 1st. We got the easylunchboxes.com bentos. They are so much sturdier than I thought they would be!

Re: Share your Bento Boxes!

Out of curiousity does anyone know of a good store to check out in Japan? I live on Okinawa island currently. I've seen a few stores I plan on checking out, but I'm not sure if there's any particular place I should check out.
