Cute DD find

I found the most adorable little lunch boxes and accessories. Bento boxes. I had never heard of them until I saw them advertised on FB. Japanese lunch boxes that look like sushi, with little tiny compartments for your food. There's also little tiny sauce cups with pretty colorful lids and little egg holders that shape boiled eggs into little shapes. I can't get over how absolutely precious it is, lol. I was so taken with them that I had the lunch box, accessories, bag etc in my "cart" and realized it was going to be nearly 100.00. I am just coveting them for now.

$100 for a lunch box

You are way out there with the money!

I want something "more" for a $100 bill!

All I can say is WOW - you must be rolling in the dough!

Enjoy your purchase!

hehe! I have friends that find all kinds of various little bento boxes/accessories for their preschool/grade school kids' lunches. I am just not that organized. They are VERY cute, though!

Keira has a couple of Bento-like boxes I got at Target for like $8 per set. They are in the exercise equipment section, where water bottles and lunch boxes are.

I have so many bento boxes and all of the egg molds and rice molds, too. I have picks and cupcake liners and everything. They are the tiniest boxes, but they hold so much. Whenever I eat hardcore LC, I go from the biggest box down to the tiniest box, and everything looks so cute when there's more. When all I have are some eggs and meat, it doesn't look so pretty. But I had so much fun making lunches. I love bentos!

It is wonderful to have pretty pieces to dine with. If I was still working I'd definitely have a Bento Box. Just love them and all the little accessories. For at home, I have bought some pretty small plates and salad plates. They help me keep my portions under control and make me happy.

Just checked out the Bento Boxes on Amazon. How cute! I love the two-tiered Panda one. It's only $19.00.

I'm falling in love the the bento thermos containers so a hot or cold lunch can stay that way. The Ms and Mr Zojirushi are adorable. I always bring food with me to work and events. Now I want little piggy egg molds, flower vege cutters, and the works. So embarrassingly greedy.

As a related aside, I have a mini lunch crockpot for work that has a stainless insert with rubbery lid for transporting lunch from fridge to office. I just pop the container into the little housing, screw the lid on, plug in, and it heats up refrigerator temperature food to hot by lunchtime. No odor of cooking food in office either. The inner lid pops up when food gets warm, and the stainless bowl just lifts out to eat from. I bought a couple of extra inserts so I can prepack for a few work days ahead and throw the dirty bowl in the dishwasher if I need to.
