Share your memories here in the comment section, on your own blog, or privately in a journal you keep at home. The important thing is to write.
Last week I thought about our Bread Box. Sounds like a silly memory doesn't it? I don't know why it popped into my head. You rarely see them anymore so maybe 100 years from now my descendants won't even know what one is.
My mom had a bread box on the kitchen counter - the kind with the flip up front. It was made out of some cheap metal, maybe tin?
When i was first married, I had a breadbox too. Old habits die hard I guess! But the bread didn't last long, it would often go moldy before the loaf was finished.
Funny how that went out of style at some point. Now I store my bread in the refrigerator. It dries out but it lasts longer. Kind of a Catch-22 situation.
