Bread charges by the weight

Usually the bread will be put into the plastic bag and it will be charged by a certain of amount. There is a bakery nearby my home and it is funny that they charge by the bread weight. Normally I buy eight piece of bread as breakfast for three of us. I don't have to buy a bag of bread because sometimes it will be a little more for me. It seems it is a fair way because they charge the bread by the weight

I feel it's fare and convenient. Buying a whole packet always goes waste at my place. This way you can always buy fresh breads

I don't want to waste the food and therefore 8 piece of bread will be good for us.

@youless right. This is the correct way. We have to buy the whole packet. At my place no one likes bread but me, and a whole packet is so much for me to finish within expiry date.

I wish we had something like that. It is only me, and I wish I could buy two or three slices, rather than a whole loaf. It is just me, and I don't eat it fast enough.

I can understand it. I had the same problem long time ago when I lived alone.

That is cool Youless. It is not that way here, one has to buy the whole loaf. It must be nice and fresh for you.

Here it is the same. Other bakeries charge the whole loaf. I found even if I buy 8 pieces of bread, but each time the amount will be a little different. Perhaps the seller doesn't want to lose the profit and it is fair to charge by weight

That is a new thing to me. Never had bread charged by weight before. Makes sense, though.

I think only this bakery charges bread like that.

That's good actually. Mostly all the times we have some leftover bread over here. When you are able choose how many slices to buy it prevents wastage.

If I was alone, perhaps I needed two pieces of bread only

@youless You did mention in one of your discussions you have the facility to hire cycles which is quite rare.

Do you think this is funny? This is how it works in Europe from centuries.

@youless The pre-packed bread has a standard weight. The fresh bread we buy in the bakeries has to be weighted.

This is strange. I haven't encountered or heard any bakery here that charges bread by weight. Oh no, I hope it won't happen here.

It is OK for me because I don't want to buy more bread. I can finish it at once and I won't have the leftover bread.

I prefer to finish the bread sooner and I don't like to store it in the fridge.

Really! So it is like buying meat! That sounds really strange because I am used to buying it by piece.

That is good. You only pay for the daily bread. I would buy three of them and complement them during lunch

That bakery just charge by weight because it will be fair for both sellers and buyers.
