Other good places for the silicone cups (as well as cool picks and such) are Michael's and Hobby Lobby. Both stores frequently have 40% off coupons which are nice when trying to build a larger collection of supplies cheaply.

The best place to get stuff was ichibankanusa.com. They had all kinds of bento supplies super cheap. Unfortunately they closed their online store, but if you are fortunate enough to live near one of their brick & mortar retail shops you can find a huge selection of inexpensive bento supplies.

Cooking Cute has some great tutorials:
www.cookingcute.com/index.htm

I'm not a huge fan of BentoTV, but some people are and it might give you some ideas:
bentotv.com/

I actually got interested in bento a while back reading Vegan Lunch Box (which I heard about through a decidedly omnivorous friend, so don't let the veg scare you):
veganlunchbox.blogspot.com/

And this is one of my favorite inspiration sites these days. The mom is packing for her daughter and it's all cute but looks like it took an amount of effort I can envision putting into a lunch:

Read and read and read this Book of Five Rings, and step and step and step on this dojo floor.

The ones that got me started were justbento.com and lunchinabox.net. The bento flikr pools are also very active (www.flickr.com/groups/367772@N22/, www.flickr.com/groups/bentoboxes/ and www.flickr.com/groups/justbento/. Two very basic things that can help get you started is some kind of container (my go to is a 2.5 cup Sterlite latching container from Walmart www.flickr.com/photos/61466921@N00/4030896

and some silicone cupcake liners www.amazon.com/Wilton-Square-Silicone-Baki

which you can also get at Target or Walmart.

Hello from Fairbanks Alaska!
I am on another team with mirdream's and loved her profile pic and asked about it. I'm down with cute. Who knew cute and lunch could go together?! I have much to learn. Any links would be appreciated!
