bread boxes: useful or space wasters?




Wondering through Tarjay the other day, I was distracted by some very cute bread boxes prominently on display. Do I need one of these, I thought? Our bread storage habits are kinda haphazard. We just toss them in a wire bin tucked under a counter (along with our potatoes, dog treats, and such). My grandma always used one but never told me: Does bread really last longer if stored in a bread basket? Should it be stored in the fridge? Why do some bread bins cost so much?

Some cute bread boxes that have me debating giving up valuable counter space:

Target’s Pin Jan White Bread Box, $18.

Colorful bread bins from Wesco, about $100

Retro Metal Bread Box on Ebay, starting at $19.
