Need Large Bread Box

peabody1January 20, 2013

I'm hoping someone will have some suggestions. I am looking for a large bread box. We have two loaves of bread and a bunch of bananas sitting on the counter. I can't take it anymore. My husband will not let me put them in the pantry. So I'm hoping to find a bread box to hide them in. Suggestions?

I store bread in the oven.

The oven would be a good big storage area, but with our luck we would forget and turn it on and smoke the house up.

If you google "wooden bread box" you will see lots of options. Know anyone who does decorative painting? They can add whatever you want to the outside.

It only takes once to remember that the oven is also storage. Going forward it's not a problem. At least that is my experience!

Never a good idea to store food in the oven--even if you do remember to empty it, who wants to do that a couple of times a day. And what if someone else in the household (or a guest) doesn't realize it's being used as a spare cupboard?

Does your husband do the majority of the cooking? If so, he gets a vote on where you store food--if you do most of the cooking and clean-up? Then for heavens sake, put the bread in the pantry. That makes the most sense, after all, if you have the space there.

As to a bread box? I have a feeling that even if you get one, your husband won't bother to use it. Could be wrong, but if he doesn't want to walk a few extra steps to the pantry.....
