Cooking for two - what to do with a loaf of bread?

What do you do when there is only two of you and a loaf of  bread?

Do you ever have that problem? 
-  I used to put the remaining loaf in the freezer, but then I usually end up throwing it out later.

I hate wasting food, what about you?
So here is how I deal with a loaf of bread when there is only two of you.

Bought this loaf of bread at Walmart yesterday on their oops - made too much cart.  Only 30 cents! (You can use any type of bread) 
Eclectic Red Barn: Italian bread

Sliced it up into pieces.

Laid it on a tray and placed it in the freezer for about 5 minutes.

Placed the slices in freezer bags.

Now for the best part:
- you want to make some garlic bread - pull out some slices
- you want to make French toast - pull out some slices
- you want to make regular toast - pull out some slices
- you can make bread crumbs - pull out some slices
Are you getting the idea - pull out some slices

This is also a great idea for camping. I put some slices in a freezer bag and when we are camping, I have bread for toast, French toast, garlic bread or what ever else I need bread for.

When cooking for two - that 30 cent loaf will last a long time and will not go to waste.You can cook for two, just be smart about it.
