Rubbermaid Bento Boxes & Toppers Review & Give Away...

Several weeks ago I received an email from a representative working for Rubbermaid. She explained that Rubbermaid has just released a new line of decorative, fabric storage containers called "Bento." These storage boxes are unique because they feature "Flex Dividers" that allow you to easily create division inside the containers to organize the items while you store them. The dividers pop in and out based on what you need to store at the time...

In addition these storage boxes come with "Bento Toppers." The Topper can be used in two different ways. You can use the topper as a tray to contain items that are frequently used that you want to contain, or they can be used as a lid for the Bento Box by flipping over the Topper.

I was intrigued. The idea of being able to create divisions within a box appealed to me. I also loved the idea of a storage container that was nice enough to be used as a decorative accessory in a room, so I agreed to review the boxes.

An assortment of various sizes of Bento Boxes and Toppers were shipped my way free of charge. There was no requirement made by Rubbermaid for me to write a review or to write a positive review.

Nevertheless, that is exactly what I'd like to do. A picture is worth a thousand words and I'm sure you've already drawn the conclusion that these boxes are both stylish and practical. The smaller ones are perfect for office, kitchen, craft or sewing supplies and the larger ones would work well for magazines, winter sweaters, throws or sewing/craft projects. I love the fact that I can divide the boxes into compartments. It is the perfect way to "divide and conquer" the clutter in my home.

Another practical aspect about the Bento Boxes are the Toppers. They are easy to remove from the box, and they can be tucked into the top of the box to create a ledge all around the top of the box or flipped to create a more conventional lid on the box.
