Household Helpers

Usually in this post I'll mention a cleaner that I've come across that is really great. This time I thought I would go a different route. One pet peeve of mine when I'm shopping is to try and find the freshest loaf of bread on the shelf. I really don't stay loyal to a particular brand. It's all in finding the freshest. I came across a website today that says you can tell the freshness by the color of the twist tie. They say that bread is normally delivered 5 days a week being M,T,Th,F,S. Supposedly by looking at the color of the twist tie you can tell how fresh the loaf is. Here goes: Monday - Blue, Tuesday - Green, Thursday - Red, Friday - White, and Saturday - Yellow. I don't know if it's true but I did happen to buy a loaf yesterday (Sunday) and the tie on it was yellow and it was a nice fresh loaf. Check your local store and let me know what you find out! Hope this household helper was a good one!

I've heard this, too, and it does seem to be accurate. AND the easy way to remember the colors is that they're alphabetical. (OK, I'm a slow learner. LOL)
