Well, we were starting to get the case of too much counter clutter...and I don't want to blame it on our new paleo habit, but it kinda started as soon as we started snacking on dried fruits and nuts, instead of processed snacks with bulkier pantry-sized packaging. So, my hunt for a counter-friendly solution began! And, we ended up with a sleek looking bread bin that stashes all of our more paleo-friendly snacks...
(the "Paleo"way of eating models what hunter/gatherers would eat - like meat, eggs, fruit, vegetables, nuts; you avoid all processed foods, added sugars, dairy, and wheat/gluten products)
Isn't she sleek and pretty on the exterior? I found her at West Elm - they're available in-store only. Now, look what she's hiding on the inside...
It's an oxymoron that it's called a "bread bin" when we can't eat bread...but it serves a fine purpose keeping the snack clutter at bay. (Don't tell the strict paleo's that we eat dark chocolate occasionally...shhhhhh, only on Sundays)
And, you can see that our counters are looking a little less haphazard! Yay to that!!
(note: the toaster has since been removed as it no longer serves a purpose...I miss waffles)
Here are a few other well-rated and pretty bread bins/boxes that I found while on the hunt...in my caveman skirt. (ok, not really)
