Bento Organization & Google!

I often get asked exactly what our bento supplies really look like, so Faith & I organized the cabinet, took out some stuff that is too young/small for her & Ben and took pictures.

Bear in mind that there is one more shelf above this, except it stores random holiday items since I can't reach it without a chair. Shaun's stuff is stored in the tupperware cupboard & the cutlery is all in a separate drawer. I also need another bin of some sort for the sauce bottles and extra elastic bands.

Top shelf - mid-size boxes (Dora, Diego, Spongebob, etc), some sandwich boxes, some divided bowls that I probably need to get rid of since they are for babies, 2 Laptop Lunches, frequently used cookie cutters, and two very cool triangular boxes that my friend Michelle brought me from California

Middle shelf - two tiered boxes, an egg slicer and a couple of shaped boxes that don't stack well (the Hello Kitty & Shinkansen shaped bento box happen to be two of my favorites)

Bottom shelf - smaller boxes, food picks, egg molds, rice molds, side dish containers, silicone dividers, mini cookie cutters and usually the water bottles in the open area but I took them out for the picture

And in other news, open a new window, go to Google and type in "bento lunch blog"!

My husband is on this whole Google thing for work lately with SEOs and all sorts of junk that goes in one of my ears and out the other. Basically, meaning I do absolutely nothing to work on my own Google rating other than writing a blog.

That said, for the above search terms, I'm first!!! :o)

A friend of mine also pointed out for what she would consider more difficult search terms to conquer, that "bento blog" still yields me #4, and "bento lunch" ends up at #7 (or #8 if you count the Google images link.

Just had to celebrate that, since it was never a plan of mine. :o)
