I don't know about a 12 step program, Kiana, but I feel for you. I bought a bunch of the Natural Lunch rectangle boxes from Ichiban Kan so that I now have 9 bento boxes in my cupboard. I managed to corral it at least in part by requiring myself to make my own belts and furoshiki for each of the boxes. And I've told myself I'm not allowed to buy any more.

No matter how cute or cunning. *stern look in the mirror*

No matter how much I want that Sakura onigiri box from J-list. *an even sterner look*

Are those lip balm containers? (Little pink and blue "disks") What a terrific idea!

I bought them from a bento store on e-bay, but ichiban-kan does indeed sell them as lip balm containers. They have screw lids which makes them amazing
(at least to me).

I'm a beginner with bento, so I really don't have a lot of solely bento supplies. I've used some basic things that I can pick up at any retailer, like Tupperware, and some stuff I got from J-Box.com. Which is an awesome site for nifty bento things, by the way.

I got these about a week ago from Ichibankan (love the site and prices!). They are so adorable! I also have two Hello Kitty bento boxes I bought at a local dollar store (not pictured). I think I'm not buying any bento for a while, but maybe more things for decorating. :)

Edited to add:



Not necessarily a bento but... I found these Disney food containers at a local supermarket. They come in 3 sizes: 1200 ml, 800 ml and 450 ml. I got a medium Princess one and a small Hannah Montana, but they had a variety of designs like Cars, etc. The 1200 container was too big for me. :P These are great because they have a snap lid. Sorry for the awful quality of the pics. Had to take these with my cellphone camera.

Here are most of our boxes. I forgot to empty the dishwasher :P so a few are missing

Kidlet pointed out that I have more boxes than he does. I told him I was a girl and it's like shoes. We both have two feet but I'm a girl so I need more shoes. We both eat bento lunch but I'm a girl so I need more boxes ;)
