Share your back-to-school bento strategies!


While we are still in the dog days of summer (at least here in the northern hemisphere), it's already time for many of us to start thinking about Back to School!

Whether it's for yourself, your spouse/partner or kids, you may be thinking about incorporating healthy bento lunches into your everyday routine in the fall/autumn. What's your plan? What about bentos appeal to you (I'm guessing they must, since you're here!)? Share your tips, ideas, strategies for great bento-ing, right here in the comments.

And there's a prize...

The author of the comment that stands out the most to me will receive a US $30 gift certificate, courtesy of our friends at J-List! Not only does J-List carry a big selection of bento boxes and accessories ranging from the cute/kawaii to the elegant and traditional, they also have fun Japanese stationery goods, Japanese study aids, and much more.

The rules and such

  • Please limit yourself to one comment! You can have tons of ideas if you want to in that one comment.
  • Your comment should be in English.
  • In order to be eligible to win the prize, you must live in a country where J-List ships. They do ship worldwide, but if you aren't sure take a look at their FAQ page.
  • Include a valid email address where you can be reached in the appropriate comment form area if you want to be eligible for the prize.

This contest is now closed to entries. The winner will be announced later this week. Thank you everyone for participating!
