My grandmother used to keep a wooden roll down bread box in her kitchen. She made her own bread and would store it in the bread box so that it could be eaten the next day. Sometimes she kept cupcakes and cookies in there too. But those didn't last for long because we would always finish them!
That bread box was enough for my grandmother but it's not enough anymore. We have a pretty big one in the kitchen and we keep a variety of breads and rolls in there.
I don't make bread and my husband and my kids like different kinds of bread. So I always have two or three different ones at home all the time, plus bread rolls for dinner. Our bread box has to fit them all in.
I do like the look of the older style wooden roll downs like my grandmother used. But there is no way I could fit all my bread in there.
