I am always looking for items which make my life a little bit more convenient.  I buy the Yakinori 1/3 Size by Mikuniya.  There are 15 sheets of nori in one package. You can wrap the nori onto an onigiri or eat it on its own.  You don’t have to hassle with cutting the larger sheets of nori.  You can find this Nori at Nijiya for $5.99. It’s pricey, but worth it for me to pay this amount for the good taste and quality, and best of all not having to hassle with cutting the larger sheets.

私はいつも利便性をかんがえています。ニジヤマーケットで売っている三国屋1/3サイズ焼き海苔15枚入りを愛用しています。お握りに巻いたりそのままいただけます。海苔の味はとても美味しくパリッと噛み切れお値段は高めですがハサミをその度に出さなくてよいし 高品質を考えるとおすすめお便利商品です。

My daughter attends a Japanese preschool on Sawtelle and I need to make a Japanese bento for her to take to school.  Bento making for mothers in Japan is a big deal, and my bento lunches would get a failing grade in Japan.  Luckily, I live in the states and I can make a simple lunch using bento “accessories” sold at Daiso without any judgments from teachers or other mothers.  They have cute paper muffin cups and toothpicks to give my bentos some flairDaiso has a great bento section and all items are $1.50!
