Can you believe Summer is almost over and Back to School is just around the corner? I am already starting to think about what new Bento Box lunch ideas I can come up with!

Last year before school started, my daughter specifically asked me to start making her lunch for her turns out she never liked the cafeteria food. After volunteering many times and eating it myself…I understood! How could I say NO to THAT?! 

Since I knew I'd be making her lunch, we made sure she got a new matching lunchbox with her backpack set from Pottery Barn Kids. Of course the lunchboxes had Bento Boxes that matched! Into the cart 2 matching boxes went!

Little did I know then, those 2 little Bento Boxes would create into a mild obsession!

Note: the "lid" compartmen inside, is NOT leakproof!

When I started off I did not have any “tools”  and we only had those 2 Bento Boxes. They are 2 of our favorite boxes, but they are not “compartment-leak-free” sad to say, so this can be an issue at times.

After I started making lunch everyday I realized I needed to have a minimum of 5 Bento Boxes! 

To Amazon and Target I went and started experimenting with different Bento Boxes – especially looking for one that had “Leak-Free” compartments!

The bento boxes that I bought and actually use in my bento box lunch ideas are the ones I’ve attached for you! I have bought many and returned the ones that just didn’t work! I have done the legwork! 

If you haven’t realized by now, I don’t mind experimenting to get exactly what I want!   

It took a little while for me to really hit my stride, but I did make some cute lunches along the way, even my amateur ones!
