Over at LunchInABox.net, Biggie asked readers to share their methods of organizing bento gear. I don't have a ton of bento supplies, but there's enough that I felt the need to organize them about a year ago. I keep the small stuff in a set of Sterilite drawers...
1st Drawer: Sauce containers and plastic picks. 2nd Drawer: Mini cookie cutters. 3rd Drawer: Paper punches (got them on sale for $1 each at Michael's), two onigiri molds and a tulip hot dog cutter (haven't used the cutter yet).
My bento boxes are in a easy-to-reach lower cabinet with a glass door.
There are my beloved Lock & Lock containers, on top of a red Lunch&Go box. I've used the Lunch&Go a couple of times, but it's a little too big and deep for regular bentos. I've got three Japanese boxes (yay Totoro!). I've also stored some leftover sauce containers from Baja Fresh and Quizno's. Under those sauce containers is a sandwich box that I purchased at Target last year for $1. It's still in plastic, never used! It's small, but it might be good for a snack bento.
Thanks to Biggie for suggesting this post! Check out her blog for speedy bento tips and more!
