What LOCAL store carries ANY divided lunch container??

I am sick of ordering everything. I would rather go to a shop and if its broken I can go back and replace it.....I am sick of paying shipping and waiting for a simple plastic container.

We were at containerstore.com today but they have not what I am looking for.

So, where else to go???

Isn't there some kind of kitchen place that has a huge variety of lock&lock or simply containers that are a little bit "outside the box"???

I am so tired of running around and finding same old stuff in every store....

Would a Wal-Mart or Target carry this? There is a divided container that looks similar to the easy lunchboxes one.

I've had good luck at target, althogh lately it seems like they're not carrying as much as they were before when all the summery picnic stuff is out. The second place I've found most of it is at "Big Lots" which is kind of an overstock store. Not sure how popular they are where you are...but maybe if you have some place that does overstocks and markdown merchandise...that has been my lucky place lately!

I was going to suggest Tupperware also. My friend bought us some boxes for the girls that have divided compartments. They work very well. One of the spots is just the right size for a juice box.

Found the ziplock box at Target. I bet the lid is broken in half within a week.....have to look for another solution. But for now I have the ziplocs.

And yes we have Big Lots here. We used to have BIGGS which had the bestest lock&lock selection but they closed...what a bummer...

Hey, I have 2 of the aqua-colored ones (bought new from a Tupperware salesmama on here & used a few times) if you'd like them for $15ppd
I need to get some smaller bento containers for DD's new lunchbox. Very sturdy & heavy duty.
