It's strange because a friend of mine and I were just looking through a book she brought back from Japan with pictures of different bento lunches. They were completely adorable and we wanted to try to make them. Unfortunately, it'll take us forever to translate the Japanese.
Anyway, after realizing that it's only the end of the first week of school and I already spend over $20 on lunch for four days (because I didn't eat on the first day), I decided that I need to make my own lunch to take with me.
I'm hoping this thread will be active and full of ideas and tips.
