Try freezing bread to save money! Bread is getting so expensive. Generic bread is now over $1 a loaf. And name brand bread… it’s closer to $2 or higher!
I was surprised to find out that our local Dollar Tree sells bread that is about to expire. I found loaves of my favorite bread, Nature’s Own, for $1 a loaf! It was about 2 days from it’s expiration date, but I froze the loaves of bread to make them last.
You can also find close to expiring bread at bread outlet stores. Be sure to check your area to see if you have one.
To freeze the loaves of bread, I leave it in it’s original packaging and put it straight in the freezer. When I am ready to use it, I let it defrost on the counter for a few hours. I’ve never had issues with my bread being wet or soggy and my kids have never complained about the taste of the bread.
