Though bread boxes were historically meant for homemade (translation: preservative-free) baked goods, they still offer an improvement over the air-tight plastic bags commercial bread comes in. Think of these finds as dream homes for your loaves, both fresh and store-bought. If you’re someone who carb-loads on the regular, then the ROI on these babies will be limitless. Bread boxes keep your bread fresher for longer.
How charming! Creative Co-op
Reminiscent of antique bread boxes, this enameled number will add vintage flair to any kitchen counter or shelf. And you don’t have to store just baked goods in it; the Creative Co-Op box is also great for stashing any kitchen essentials you’d like to keep out of sight under a convenient, tight-fitting (but not too tight-fitting!) lid.
