Do you use them all the timeorjust onece in a while?
Ordered them. I believe they came from laptoplunches.com. They are a little pricey but last a long time and eliminate most of the disposable stuff that you would have been sending to school. I have also seen some of the bento style boxes at discount stores like Ross and TJ Maxx. Those are always hit or miss though.

I'm using bento buddies in DD's lunchbox. She likes to bring sandwiches for lunch and I hate wasting a bag on that, so putting it in the little boxes makes sense and I can clean and reuse them. Also, buying the smaller snack size things is more expensive so for me using the bento boxes ends up being less expensive to send her to school with healthy food. The little single serve carrots are expensive, but buying a bag and putting them in a box costs way less. It's another thing to clean, but you only have to buy it once instead of replenishing it like sandwich or snack bags. Besides preference, I don't know that there is a whole lot of difference though.
