You like to make meals at home and take them wherever you're going. Bento-box style food storage containers are perfect for you. Some are wide and shallow, making them ideal for transporting foods such as salads. Others have compartments, which means you can store and transport several different types of foods—a sandwich, coleslaw, chips, and fruit slices, for instance—in one container. There's no need to pack separate foods into individual plastic bags or toss them all together into one tub. Another plus is that you can eat your meal right out of the container with a fork and knife, like a civilized person. These containers can be microwaved, so you can warm up your meal if you're near a kitchen.
