I love the everything about the holidays, the music, the love, my family, and everything that represents peace. However the holidays are also stressful at times. For example it is the beginning of December and I don’t have one decoration up, no lights on the outside of the house, or a tree in the living room. We are currently house hunting which seems to be taking up some of my little free time. This means I have less time to keep things organized and clean around my home.
I dread that call that my mother or a friend is stopping by in the evening. This usually means we rush around the house trying to put everything in its place to resemble a home. My daughter loves to draw, color, and be creative. I love to encourage her to do so but usually when this happens my kitchen table turns into this!
Of course when I ask her to clean it up you would have thought I asked her to run a marathon. All of a sudden she is tired and can’t move. After much convincing she will usually clean it up. This is her idea of cleaning it up…
She simply transfers the mess from the table to her bed. Then when it is bed time everything ends up on the floor. This weekend I decided enough was enough! We spend hours cleaning her room just to find it a mess by the end of the week. Since she is forever getting this stuff out I decided she needed to have something to carry everything in. She is currently working on some fun holiday projects for the family so I knew if I didn’t act now my kitchen table would forever remain the hub of disaster.
Honey had a gift certificate for Target (from her birthday) so I decided while I was there to look in the organization section. Just so you know, organizing is really not my thing. I’m a very unstructured and often unorganized person. However if I was going to keep my house in a semi clean condition during the holidays I knew I needed to get her something. We looked up and down the isles. The problem with the plastic organizers is they often crack after time. I wanted something sturdy but I wanted something more than just a box. That is when I came across these Rubbermaid Bento boxes. They are so cool!
I was surprised at how sturdy the box was. I let Honey pick out her design and fill her craft box with the items she uses most. This is such a great way for her to move her crafts from the kitchen table to her room without creating a mess in her wake.
Since all the Rubbermaid Bento boxes were on sale I couldn’t help picking up a few more for myself. I already had visions of what I could use them for. I mentioned I was not the most organized person right? My desk (if you can find it) is not always in the neatest condition. I actually have two, one in my bedroom and one in the living room. It seems that no matter where I’m at I never have the supplies I need. No writing utensils or notepads. So I grabbed one of the smaller boxes to organize some office supplies that I can easily move from desk to desk.
I also thought they would be great in the bathroom. Instead constantly searching for my most used make-up I used one of the Rubbermaind Bento boxes and created a little makeup station. I think this is my favorite use of the Bento boxes so far. They really keep everything neat and tidy. This little box was only $5.94 and that is without the $1 Rubbermaid coupon I’m getting ready to share with you. You can keep your own house tidy and organized for the holidays and year round and save in the process. Simply grab your $1before you go shopping.

I can already see so many other uses for these Rubbermaid Bento boxes. How about a small game center with playing cards, dice, pencils and paper. Or use your Bento box to give a gift wrapped in a gift. Instead of using a basket or wrapping paper why not create a fun themed gift and wrap it in a Bento box. Maybe for the entertainment lover add some popcorn, movies, music, movie theater tickets, gift cards, candy and more. The Rubbermaid Bento box is so much better then wrapping paper that will make its way to the trash. Your recipient will be able to add a little organization to their own life!
