Once a month or so on a Tuesday, I make a trip down 44th to a discount bread store. I get multiple loaves at a good price plus a couple of freebies.
If you are going to do discount bread, too, make sure you like their brands of bread. It isn't a bargain if it gets moldy or feeds the birds or ducks (neither should eat bread).
On Tuesday, they have double punch days. That fills up your card faster for more free bread. Occasionally, we will cash in our cards and donate the bread to a local food bank.
Because we like variety, we supplement our discount bread buys with bread from our local grocery's mark-down rack as discussed in a previous post.
