Best Budget Bento | My Square Meal Yellow Bento Box
Bento boxes are the new back-to-school must-have, providing a reusable, organized, convenient way to pack food without needing baggies or multiple containers. Yet they can be quite pricey, often climbing above the $30 mark. If you’re just looking for a basic bento box to better organize your child’s lunch, this recyclable, dishwasher-safe, 8″ x 8″ bento has seven different sections and even comes with a biodegradable spork. It snaps easily and stays tightly closed without needing any lids or loose containers that inevitably get lost. And at less than $10, you really can’t beat the price. (Especially if you stick it in a $4 Old Navy insulated lunch kit.)
Find it at My Square Meal for $9.95
