I see a lot of people with small dressing containers inside the bento containers.....where do you get such things?

I purchase mine off of ebay - there are some really reasonably priced sellers out there. You can also get them from various Asian Markets, but I don't have one in town that carries bento accessories.

I get mine at the Container Store. Mine are boring, but they work!

i use plastic film containers for my dressings and dips!
I have a shotglass-size and shaped Tupperware container with a lid. Too big to go inside for the trip to work, so I wrap it in plastic wrap and hold it in place inside the top of the Mr. Bento bag. Coming home, there's room in the big container to carry it sideways.

I got some cute shaped ones off ebay and Jbox.com, but I also have some plain ones I bought from the storage container section of the supermarket.

I put my extra containers on top of the Mr. Bento (but inside the carrying bag) or in one of the pockets if they won't fit inside of the containers.

It depends on what I'm packing that day. If there isn't much, I'll sacrifice the smallest bowl for dressing/sauce container and little snacks. If I'm packing full then I just put it in my lunchbox. I never used my Mr Bento bag because I needed more room for drinks than the bag would afford so I used a regular lunch 'box' (soft-sided)
