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.
I'm a sixteen year old californian packing bento and finding out about FOOD!

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.

My name is Shelly. I'm a SAHM to a toddler boy. I'm new to this bento thing and hoping to be really great at it by the time my son hits elementary school. :)

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.
