Have you ever bought something for one place in your home and then ended up using it all over your house? That’s exactly how I feel about Rubbermaid’s new Bento Boxes! These boxes are so durable and versatile I know they will last us through the years!
And what’s better than durable and versatile storage boxes? Beautiful ones! Rubbermaid has really hit it spot on by making a product that is not only extremely useful but also adds to the beauty in your home!
When I say versatile, I am referring to the limitless possibilities Rubbermaid’s Bento Boxes offer. There are flex dividers that open and close to compartmentalize items inside (see below). The Bento toppers flip over and fit snugly inside to provide a resting spot for magazines, books, glasses, remotes, etc. Boxes stack on top of each other and inside each other giving you a huge variety in helping you organize. I am incredibly impressed!
Rubbermaid states that the Bento Boxes and Toppers will help you divide and conquer your clutter because they organize items for easy access rather than simply containing them. And I have to wholeheartedly agree with this statement!
You can view the Rubbermaid Bento Boxes in action over on the Rubbermaid YouTube channel or at this clip from Lifetime’s Designing Spaces TV show.
Here is how I used Rubbermaid’s Bento storage boxes to help organize various spots in my home!
I used the large box and topper to create a reading center in our new playroom. The red color (called Paprika) complements our primary color scheme quite well. The roomy box does a great job of fitting all of our tapes, books and tape player. My favorite part is the lid flips over to create a mini desktop (see below)!
The x-large box topper is being used on top of our ottoman in the living area. This has solved a good amount of issues for us. One, it keeps the little one from climbing onto the ottoman. Two, I now have a place to put new magazines until I am able to read them. Three, we have a place for our remote control! I love creating places for things!
The medium lid topper has created a place to put keys, sunglasses and miscellaneous items when we come home. The textured surface keeps the tray from moving around and is the perfect size for our entryway table!
The x-large, medium and small boxes will all have a place in Jordan’s superhero themed nursery. Again the red paprika color will be a perfect complement to the color scheme! Even though I have the boxes nestled inside each other (see below), I plan on using the smaller sizes to organize diapering items on the changing table. And I am sure the x-large box will house and organize his toys quite well!
