Strategist contributor Leah Bhabha describes the Takenaka Bento box as her “secret to saving money at lunch” — she says the container “makes packing a meal feel like a treat instead of a sacrifice.” Bhaba likes that the box snaps shut securely, has two layers to separate saucy and dry foods, and is co-worker-impressingly cute. (According to contributor John Jodzio, it also makes a really good weed-storage container.) The bento box is on sale at Nordstrom today for up to 40 percent off in a few summery colors: a cantaloupe-y coral, lemon yellow, and bright red. All colors ship free, so you’ll be enjoying packing lunches in no time.
