If you are lucky, I've seen in several Target stores small plastic containers that could easily be used for bento, and even better they are in the $1 racks! (Ok so some of it might be $2.50)

However, the $1 racks vary from store to store. The one in the Palisades Mall in Rockland NY had awesome sandwich boxes with 3 compartments, 1 for the sandwich and 2 for smaller things. The two halves snapped together. There were small cyndrilical containers for cereal that have an attached folding spoon. They had a salad bowl with a special top. You fill a hole in the top with salad dressing, and when you press a button, the compartment pops open and the dressing goes on the salad.

They also had small spoon and fork sets, and lots of cute silicone stuff for baking!

Re: target bento goldmine!

You know, my husband went to Target last night and came home with oodles of stuff that is bento-friendly--esp. the silicon baking cups. I haven't seen the other things here, yet. I will keep my eyes open, though. Thanks for the heads up!

Re: target bento goldmine!

Lots of back to school bento stuff just entered my Target this week. Yesterday I spied Princess, "Cars" and Hello Kitty sandwich size boxes as sets with water bottles, snack circle boxes and little snack cups with tight lids(3 in a pack). These pieces were in the dollar spot section as you walk in the door. I would have taken a picture for you with my cell phone but I'm the mom. I have a lousy cell phone. My teenagers have the really good ones.
