2011 Holiday Gift Guide Feature: Rubbermaid Bento Box {review + giveaway}

Organization is something I strive for in my home. I know I’m and my family are a lot happier when needed things can be found right away without having to look for five, ten, fifteen minutes, and sometimes even an hour! The thing is to be organized, you need to have a place to put things. And let’s face it, it’s not always the most fun trying to find containers that will fit somewhere in your house. Who wants to have giant storage bins all over the house? Certainly not me, because they aren’t very attractive. And with big bins it’s hard to rummage through those when something may be in need like specific say craft item or tool.

A few weeks ago I was sent Rubbermaid’s latest offerings to help in home organization called the Bento Box. The Bento collection from Rubbermaid is made up of very stylish storage boxes that are exaclty what my home was needing in becoming less cluttered!

The styles offered are very chic and are made to go with just about any themed room of your home. I received the Bento boxes in paprika to review and am just thrilled with  how nice they look. Honestly these aren’t the storage bins that you’ll want to tuck away in the garage, attic, or closet. You’ll want these seen just to brag on how useful and eye catching they are.

The Bento collection from Rubbermaid are extremely durable, have grip handles, and come in a variety of sizes. The polyester in which the boxes are covered in is really easy to keep cleaned.On the inside of the boxes is a really neat feature that provides for even more organization called flex dividers. These dividers  fold into the corners, and then pop out to make square sections in each storage box. How awesome is that?

I’m using many of the boxes I was sent to keep my bathroom organized! Before it was kind of a mess even though I have sink with multiple drawers to put things away in. But one thing led to another and the thermometer, nail clippers, hairbrushes, and everything else tended to get mixed up together and it was always chaotic to find anything! The Bento Boxes have been a bathroom life saver. No more digging for needed items in over sized drawers as the flex able dividers ion my Bento boxes have seen to that!

You can use Bento boxes where ever you see fit. You can top the boxes off with the lids or use the lids themselves as storage organizer trays! The possibilities are truly endless! The largest box I was sent is currently holding all my Christmas craft supplies for easy go to when I’m ready to craft. I love it!
