What is all that bread anyway? We've got Mom and son's 100% whole wheat, thick cut brown sugar bread for French toast, Dad's Oatnut bread, James' raisin cinnamon bread, James' Moon Pops (kinda like a rice cake), Hawaiian hot dog buns, and James' mini blueberry muffins. Whew!
I have tried putting all the bread in a giant bowl, but it never seemed large enough. Then, at Homegoods, I found a large, oval shaped basket (in a beautiful greyish color) that I knew could hold all this bread.
I lined the basket with three hand towels and figured I can switch them out or add decorative fabric in the future. The muted colors work well in my mostly white kitchen, but a pop of color would really be fun here too. Of course, you could even spray paint the basket.
This looks so much better than that miss-mash we had before!
How are you storing all of your bread? Do you use those bread bins with the lid? When I tried that, half the bread was still sitting outside the bin.

If you get a chance, I'd love to hear your mom's best advice to you, and you can share it HERE. I shared mine! :)
