I've read in several places that the Dollar Tree had bento-style boxes. Well, it's a Saturday, Shaun's working, kids & I are staring at each other, so why not take a ride.
This is what we came home with:
Now, in case you're curious, I am not *that* crazy. They are not all for us. 1 pink is for Lucy, 2 pinks are for Ashton & Ryleigh, 2 greens are for Libby & Caroline, and a blue is for Stell. The other 3 are for Faith. She couldn't decide on a color and really, they were $1, so why make things difficult. We'll use them too, so it's not like they are going to go to waste.
Once we got in the car, I had to pull the shrink wrap off a box and I was fairly impressed:
Two tiers and they all stick together fairly well. Faith and I have turned them upside down, shook them, drop them on the carpet and so far, they stay together. Now, would I put tomato sauce in one and drop it on my white couch & carpet (a la stain remover commercials)? H*ll no! But for $1, they seem to be pretty well worth it. I'm not putting mine in the dishwasher just to be safe.
