The best day to buy Day Old Bread
February 23, 2009 3:16pm CST
I was wondering when you want good bread at bargain prices, that is not the white bread, but multi-grain when is the best day to buy it? I usually find that I can get it in the middle of the week. I find that if we shop on Saturday, Monday, or Tuesday, that what they have on the day old shelf is left over white bread, buns, and maybe a whole wheat loaf, bagels, but that is all. So what day during the week do you find the good bargains?

When we go to Superstore, we have some trays in which they set out the day old bread, buns, cakes, etc. and mark them fifty percent off. They also have day old salads and fresh vegetables, but they are usually only good for soups and you have to eat them the same day, but the bread, I can put in the fridge and if I am careful can keep it in the freezer and just take out the slices for that day.

Very funny. But I went down today to pick up some loafs and the only thing on the day old shelf was white bread. If I go down tomorrow, there will be some multi-grain loaf. Now if I really did not care about my health and wanted to get white bread and get a large tummy, I would have picked some up today. But I will wait until Wednesday or Thursday where the selection is much better.

I always go to the day-old shelf. Did you know that they are color coded, at least here in the states? Monday is blue, Tuesday green, Thursday red, Friday white and Saturday is yellow. Canada may have different colors, but they're put there for the people who rotate the stock. Of course, today I bought a loaf with a black twist-tie so I have no idea how old it is! Felt fresh, even though it was marked down on the shelf with older bread.
