The average carb-loving American gobbles up 53 pounds of bread per year, and undoubtedly a few of those slices sat on a shelf too long and lost its fluffy, fresh taste. Stale bread can put a damper on lunch, but you can avoid it all together with a little grocery tidbit.

Don’t worry; you don’t have to decode any complicated puzzle. The formula is simple: each colored twisty tie indicates when the bread was baked. If you have a freakout in the bread aisle and can’t remember each day, note that the colors go in alphabetical order.
