Cute Stuff from BentoUSA

by Wendy Copley on February 17, 2017

My BentoUSA haul!(This post contains affiliate links.)

The postman delivered a big box of fun stuff from BentoUSA today! Yay!

I was busy with some other stuff when it arrived, so I decided to open it with Augie when he got home from school. And then I decided to do a spur of the moment Facebook Live unboxing video. You can check it out and get a peek at everything that came in my order (there was a lot!) in the video below. Plus, get a quick look at how I “organize” my bento stuff!

(Pretty cool how the thumbnail for this video is a messy pile of cookie cutters, isn’t it? This isn’t the stuff that came in my order — it’s how I “organize” some of my bento stuff!)

BentoUSA is my favorite place to buy bento supplies because they have a huge selection of items, their prices are reasonable compared to other online stores and the shipping is only $6 (or free if you spend enough money). If you are just beginning to pack bento lunches, it is a great place to shop if you want to build your stash.

For reference, here are links to the goodies I showed in my video:

FYI: I’m a BentoUSA affiliate, but they did not ask me to say all this stuff or send me anything for free. I’m a happy customer and I’d like to spread the word to my bento-obsessed friends!



Happy Valentine’s Day!

Cutesy lunches — especially ones filled with hearts and pink stuff — are not exactly my boys’ favorite right now, but I usually can get them to let me make them something on this lovely day. Here’s what I sent them to school with:

Heart Eyes Emoji Valentine's Lunch

Augie let me go all out with a heart eyes emoji sandwich, a ham rose, cucumber and strawberry hearts a few tomatoes and a little pink gummy heart. I packed this in the PlanetBox Rover and made heavy use of the small heart cutter in this set.

Restrained Valentine's Lunch for a Middle Schooler

Careful negotiations with my middle schooler resulted in this Valentine’s bento. I asked permission for everything I did and had to tone down the number of heart-shaped strawberries. The fact that he let me put ANY in was my Valentine treat! He also had a pb&j with a small heart cut-out and a couple of strawberry-chocolate donuts. This was packed in an EasyLunchboxes bento box.


Stranger Things Bento Box

This post includes affiliate links. Join me as we journey to the Upside Down — in a lunch box! Oooooooh! It’s not often that my 12-year-old is interested in fun bentos anymore — and it’s even more unusual when he wants to help me design one — so I felt like I’d been invited to […]
