 I kept bread bags from store bread and store the loaves in those.  You can also double bag the bread and freeze it to keep it longer.

I bought flour in bulk from a local bulk foods store.  Same with bags of yeast sold in 1 lb. pkgs.

I wrap it in Saran wrap or foil or a gallon size freezer bag and put it in the freezer.  We go through it quickly enough that it doesn't have time to get freezer burned.  I buy my flour in bulk at a Mennonite store in southern Ohio when I visit my parents.  I heard there was an Amish store about an hour and a half from me that I want to visit and check their prices.  I use unbromated and unbleached flour for EVERYTHING I make.

I'm gluten free now, but was a master at delicious, gluten-filled bread....

I freeze loaves that won't be eaten within a few days. Wrap in freezer paper, foil, and then bagged. Let thaw completely on it's own. Don't try to mic or oven...

Loaves that we will eat soon get wrapped tightly in plastic wrap, foil, and then stored in a container.

I bought my bulk flour from Sam's Club.

I've gotten bulk flour at GFS Market or Sam's Club.

I have a tupperware type thingy that I keep my bread in.  It was a pain to find out that was big enough to fit homemade loaves.  I get my bread flour from Sam's.  A 20lb bag is like $8.

Why do you use so much wrapping on bread that you'll be eating soon? Seems awfully wasteful using plastic wrap and foil for a loaf of bread that's going to be inside a container.

Homemade bread gets stale EXTREMELY fast. I don't replace the wrappings each time, I rewrap in the same paper until the loaf is gone... If you don't you will be likely wasting the bread by throwing it away because it's moldy or forcing yourself to eat it stale.
