10 Bento Reusable Food Storage Containers $11.95
Make lunches ahead to take to work or just to keep in the fridge for easy access. Get 10 reusable 3-compartment food storage containers w/lids for just $11.95 (reg $26.95) on Amazon. That's just $1.19 per container. I wish I'd had a set of these on Thanksgiving. What a great way to use leftovers to make complete meals. Assemble a bunch, then eat over several days, or freeze.
* BPA free
* Reusable, Microwave and Dishwasher safe. Amazon
FYI: Bento boxes were invented in Japan, where lunch is considered a real meal, not chips, soda pop, and a cookie. A friend of mine lived in Japan for several years while her children were young. Their teacher reprimanded her for sending a poor quality lunch for her children, and taught her about Bento boxes. She converted to it and sent high-quality real food lunches from then on. No junk food ever. She admits she was shamed into doing it, but is glad now, as her kids all learned to eat real food.
