For us, bread use seems to hit spikes and valleys. I take my lunch to work every day, and while I normally take a sandwich, there are times where I take leftovers or a frozen meal. If these situations happen for multiple days straight, sometimes bread will sit for a while. At the same time, there are occasions where you use bread like it’s going out of style. Toast for breakfast (or better yet, french toast, yummm) or grilled cheese as part of dinner, and you’ll go through a loaf in no time at all.
Even with all this, we rarely ever have any bread go stale. And, we have learned a big lesson, which is to keep bread out of the refrigerator.
