In other news, I found something cute to use for sauce containers in bento.
I was visiting a friend after Christmas when I noticed these cute things lying around. When I asked about them, it turned out they had originally held gum. They came in a six-pack from the dollar store! When I expressed my interest in them, she said I could have the empty ones and that she was just going to throw them away. While the stickers on top won’t really last past a washing, they can be peeled off/replaced with something else, and I think they’ll make perfect mayo/sauce cups for my bentos! Just keep in mind they’re not meant to be used for thin liquids like soy sauce as the lids aren’t very tight, but would be great for mayo, ketchup or thick dressings & sauces.
How did I miss these?! I’ve been to the dollar store at least half a dozen times in the past couple of months! I know it’s a bit late to find these now, but Valentine’s and Easter are just around the corner, so if you’re interested keep your eyes open for something similar with a different holiday theme!
