Rubbermaid Bento Boxes & Toppers (Review & Giveaway)

*Giveaway Closed*

I don't know what I was expecting when I took up the offer to do a review for the Rubbermaid Bento Boxes and Toppers, but when the UPS man showed up with a huge box I was so surprised and excited!

These boxes are just amazing! They are sturdy, and so neat looking!
Most of time I dread thinking about having storage containers/organizers around the house, but not with these! I would actually show them off! Lol!
The boxes and toppers came in a set of 4 and they all fit neatly into the biggest box (the X-Large box).

(Pictured above).

Mine are in the Paprika color.

Below is how the X-Large Bento box looks with the Flex dividers open.
The dividers pop out very easy, and make your containers easy to organize on the inside!
Also, may be great if you are trying to keep things stored and don't want things jostled around or broken.
 I think these would make great storage boxes for Christmas and other holidays!


My house is small, so these have been a great find for me.
My husband has the smallest one on his desk. He uses the flex dividers in his and it holds his pens in one corner, business cards in another and other small items. Great for keeping the desk from so much clutter!

I use the Medium size box for my sewing supplies! It is great for holding my scissors, needles, thread spools, lace, etc.


I love how you can use the tops for lids or covers OR trays! So neat! I have most of the tops on mine flipped over so that they can hold stuff on top too.
The tops are just as sturdy as the boxes so are also great for carrying things on, using for a tv tray, etc!

As a homeschool mom, the Bento boxes have so many uses and are so handy! If I am doing things around the house, I can always carry one of the trays with me of things I am using or need, putting up items etc.
I use the Large Bento box, JUST for homeschool, right now. It is the perfect size to hold the notebooks, teacher books, student books, flashcards and books we are using at the moment. =) I love it! So handy and also can have it right where I need it. And as you can see, in the picture below, the top for it is being used for the youngest Princess's Kindergarten puppets. =)

  57. Love these boxes! We live in an apartment and have two boys, with our third child (a girl!) due in May. It's hard to say exactly what I would use them for... There are so many ways to use storage stuff in an apartment with children! I think Loose Linen would be my preferred color (though the Chadwick is very nice =)).
