My first two bento boxes

These two little boxes were purchased at a dollar store near my home. The boxes were tucked away on the bottom shelf of an isle filled with school supplies. If you did not know about Bento boxes you wouldn't know what these little containers were used for. I think the store owner thought they were pencil holders. I flipped out. I paid $1.49 (USD) for each one. They are very basic, water tight and hold plenty of food (600 ml)


  1. Which Dollar store, if you don't mind sharing? I'd love a two tier box for my son and one of those might work for him.

  2. The store is called .99. It is located in Miami, Florida. If you live in South Florida I could tell you where to locate it.

  3. What a great find! I'll check my Dollar Tree and see what they have.
