Rubbermaid Bento Boxes Review & Give-a-way ends October 28, 2011...

New Bento Boxes & Toppers by Rubbermaid





I try really hard to stay organized - with 2 very active little boys, a husband and a dog you can imagine how quickly my house can get messed up. Recently Rubbermaid came out with a new organizational product called Bento Boxes and Toppers.



The new Bento Boxes and Toppers are made to help you divide and conquer your your clutter. These are different than any other storage box... Why you ask? Because unlike regular storage boxes that are just an empty box on the inside that you throw stuff in and can become very disorganized and unsightly when left out Bento Boxes actually have new Flex Dividers.





These Flex dividers are so cool allowing you to customize the inside of the box, creating organization solutions for various needs. They pop open when when needed and simply pop back when not. They all work individually so you can have some popped open and some closed or have then all open or all closed. The dividers are very firm and sturdy so they stay in place when open unlike other flimsy storage dividers I've had in the past!


Now onto the Bento Toppers which can be used in several ways. The 1st way is that they can simply be used as a lid to the Bento Boxes. The 2nd way is that they can be used separately from the boxes as trays around the house or you can put them on top of the Bento Box and again use them as a tray on top of the box.


I received the new Bento Boxes and Toppers in Paprika and have found several uses around the house for them. I organized my linen closet with a few of them.


I popped open a few of the dividers and rolled my bed sheets and put them in the back of one and then stacked toilet paper in the front. Worked out perfect! I then put a box beside that one and rolled pillow cases and stored them in it, by using these boxes I cleared up so much shelf space which we desperately needed!


I used one of the toppers on the shelf to stack wash clothes in - keeping them more organized.




The two smaller ones I put in my bathroom. They fit perfect in my vanity drawers and in one I opened all of the dividers putting my makeup brushes, eye liners, lip glosses and mascaras! I love that I now have each thing separately divided and I can actually find what I need in the mornings! It also cleared up sooooo much space in my makeup organizer.



And for another one I opened the dividers and put my rings in them. I have so many rings and they are perfect for storing those. In the middle I put bracelets. I love that all of my jewelry and makeup is now organized and put in drawers - I just open the drawers and waa-laa I can now find all of my pretties!



You should know that Bento Boxes and Toppers come in a variety sizes (ranging in price from $9.99 - $26.99), fabric designs and colors to compliment any home decor. The boxes were designed to hold common household items such as DVD & Video Games, File Folders, Mail, Toys, Hair Care Accessories, Audio & Video Accessories, Magazines, Board Games, Crafting Supplies, Office Supplies and so many other items! The possibilities are endless. Bento Boxes are also stackable to make the most of your space. Covered with polyester, the boxes are durable, yet easy to clean with a damp cloth.
