What do you store your bread in? I try to minimize plastic use (especially IRT food storage) but haven't found a good alternative for storing my bread. Am abt to try again with the sourdough and wondering how others store theirs.

I wrap mine in a flour sack towel. It goes stale in about a week. We usually finish a loaf by then. But if we don't, we make bread crumbs or french toast, if there's a lot left over.

One thing I've noticed about storing bread in plastic is that it tends to get moldy rather than stale- and then it can't be used for bread crumbs or anything else. I'm going to try the towel idea.
