Bento Supply Organization

Over the years my bento supplies have not only grown but have also moved all over the kitchen. It's hard to find just the right place but now I think I have it down! You can find some more organizing ideas on the Bento Booty & Lunchbox Loot Pinterest board and on Bentobloggy Picks Aplenty Part 1 and Picks Aplenty Part 2


This is the top shelf of bento supplies and holds our boxes and a bin full of bags.


The second shelf holds a hardware organizer that houses my picks, baran, silicon cups etc. Next to that are bins of sandwich cutters and rice molds. On the very bottom are all of my cookie cutters organized in to groups.  Behind the organizer there are a couple more bins of cookie cutters that are used less frequently.

The organizer has a ton of tiny drawers that are perfect for picks and baran. I love how they open easily for quick bento needs! The larger drawers on the bottom are great for sauce cups, silicon cupcake cups etc.

So that's how I organize all of my bento stuffs. How about you? How do you reign in your supplies?

  1. Yours is so much better than mine. I store my polymer clay like this, but never considered my bento stuff. Great idea.

    Ours are mostly in clear plastic shoe boxes (by type - baran in one, small containers in another, etc) stacked in a kitchen cabinet. Not too bad, because I can find stuff, but have to get the stool to get the boxes down. The really small stuff - picks and those little soy sauce containers - live in vintage Sesame Street and Thunderbirds Are Go lunch boxes which are on display.

    If I can find a place to store the storage container (is that ironic?), I'll make the switch, because I'd love to get the cabinet back for china.

    Thanks!
