Who among us hasn't coveted one of those nifty bento-style lunch boxes, either for our kids or for ourselves? The little containers! The appetizing presentation! Perhaps it will make lunches for us!
Well, if you've priced them out, you know they're not cheap. Here's Courtney's alternative, made out of disposable (but reusable) food containers you buy at the grocery store.
Pictured here: my lunch in my Ziploc version of a "bento box" lunch kit. $2.50 for two containers at Target. Has changed my snacking and lunching habits for the better! Have not even used any of my Snapware since I bought these for school lunches.
By the way, the small cup is a washed-out applesauce cup. Fits perfectly, and I'm happy to be able to reuse them.
