I rarely make a loaf of bread. Instead, I make pitas or rolls (buns). I put mine in ziplock bags. I also put shortening, milk, and egg in the dough. When I do make a loaf, I will rub the top with butter.

Why dont you wrap the bread you won't use straight away in an airtight bag and freeze. Therefor you can eat the fresh bread and then when you're ready for somemore take the second batch out of the freezer? :)

That's what I've trained my parents to do--take 1/2 of the loaf and freeze it (sliced). That way, when the 1/2 loaf is gone, they can take the half out of the freezer. When I make a loaf, I usually slice what is left and put 2 slices per ziplock bag. I eat so little bread, that even 1/2 loaf at a time would be more than I would eat in a couple of days.

I don't seem to have a problem using a whole loaf. With lunch boxes to pack every day and 3 kids that eat sandwiches when they get home I need about 1 and a half loaves per day.
We don't really eat bread over weekends so I only buy half a loaf to prevent spoiling.
Freezing does work though. I used to freeze sliced bread for sandwiches and crusty loaves are great to freeze too. Just put the crusty loaves in the oven for a few minutes at 360F before serving and it will taste freshly baked.

You can also freeze sandwiches wrapped in cling wrap and stored in an airtight container to use for lunches etc. Just make sure the filling is not wet. Only cheese, cold cuts of meat and so on.

For a day, just a towel on top of the bread. And for more, the freezer would be nice ( but making new bread would be nicer :)
