PikaMama - I think that's really nice! It's, like, 3 times the space I have!

WOW. Just wow.
I rearranged and organized and I thought my stash was looking pretty decent (and huge in my opinion)...but now I see I don't got nothin'!
You all amaze me!

Man, some of you guys have LOADS!!!!!

I have 1 box (one more coming soon), a set of 6 mini sauce bottles, some silicone cupcake liners, and some icing cutters for small things.
So, it all fits really tidily into the top of a narrow cupboard in my kitchen. I picked up some plastic baskets from Yorkshire Trading Company today, 5 for £1.49, and am going to store everything in these, in said cupboard.

I have only three boxes thus far *sigh*, therefore they go in a box in a cupboard under the kitchen counter.

For now, I have my bento goodies stored in an old play kitchen that was mine as a child. Boo is still too little to play with it much, so I use the top part for my storage and he gets to keep toys and toddler friendly kitchen items in the cabinet underneath. There is a drawer in between where I keep my bento bags. I don't mind if he gets into those.

I found this little bin at Target over the weekend. I use it to hold the smallest accessories. I use an empty wipes container to hold the larger accessories, like egg molds and utensils.

I move into my new house next month, and it's crazy but I haven't thought about where I'm going to put all of my stuff. Right now, I just have two boxes, a big one for all the bento boxes and kinchakus and a smaller one to hold the utensils and accessories (picks, nori, stencils, molds, etc).

You guys have excellent ideas on storing these. I'll have to play mime if I don't think of something. :lol:

My bento collection in the bottom of the cupboard. If it ever gets to the stage of out growing this, I think I'll be divorced! You can just see another bag hiding on the middle shelf behind my bread boxes! There's a few more bits lurking round in drawers that were baking items, now consigned to bentoing!

the collections I see on here make me very very jealous indeed, but I'm nowtrying to restrict myself to things I really need and will use, just not things I'd love to have because I like them.

I have a tiny little storage bucket in the kitchen; since I don't have my own kitchen. It has other containers in it that my whole family uses. I plan on getting them their own bucket so my bento items will be organized and pretty. I don't have much room. I want a drawer, maybe two in the future. We're moving and when we move my parents will be in the vacation house and my brother and I will be in a smaller house. I secretly plan on taking over that kitchen when I organize it and dedicate a drawer for bento. I think it's called ocd, but it's where you obsess over everything. I do that with organization.

Any tips for storage without much room/no kitchen?
I was thinking a fishing box type thing, a pretty one. For all my little items. I can put under my bed until I get more room.

CatAnne - there are all kinds of storage options out there. A bento box itself can be used as storage for things like picks, and there are plenty of people who have put tackle boxes and small sets of storage drawers to good use.

I have elfa shelving, and we have drawer built into it for all the bento boxes and little things - but just a regular shelf and a drawer can work just fine!
