But now, everything changed.
I accidently discovered a shop that sold bento boxes (and tons of manga) and they were sooooooooooooooooooooooo cute! But with a price tag of $30+, excluding taxes (we're very lucky to have a 16% tax rate), I balked. I know, I know, for someone to spends a lot of many of kawaii, $40 shouldn't be too bad right? WRONG! I have a trip to Asia to save up for and I've been spending way too much money lately. Despite this, I was seriously contemplating on whether to get a bento box or not, especially a wooden one with two adorable rabbits on it. But as I mentioned, the price tag made me decide, in the end, not to get it.
So I've started looking around for bento boxes and I always knew that bento boxes were cute but I actually started thinking about buying one. I'm going to be working full time soon, meaning that I'll be bringing lunches to work every day (I always bring lunches to school too but they're always sandwiches, they don't have microwaves at school). When I work part time, I always bring lunch that needs to be heated, but in a simple ziplock container, and everyone knows that lunches in cute containers make everything better.
I found a few that I really liked but they're all around $30! Which isn't too bad, considering how much stuff you can put into them (I don't eat much, sadly. And I'm still fat, wtf!) and some of them include chopsticks and a bento bag too.
I can make a totoro bento in a totoro bento box (yeah right, I'm just going to dump my food in my adorable bento box)!
So what should I do??????? Save money and have lunch for the rest of my life in this:
Or one of these:
And if I do get a bento, which one should I get!? Gaaaaaaah, decisions!
