Did you know that those twist ties on your bread actually mean something? I didn't until my daughter told me about them. When you go to buy bread in the grocery store, have you ever wondered which is the freshest, so you 'squeeze' for freshness or softness? Did you know that bread is delivered fresh to the stores five days a week? Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Each day has a different color twist tie.

bread ties

They are:

Monday = Blue
Tuesday = Green
Thursday = Red
Friday = White
Saturday = Yellow

So if today was Thursday, you would want red twist tie; not white which is Fridays (almost a week old)! The colors go alphabetically by color Blue- Green - Red - White - Yellow, Monday through Saturday. Very easy to remember. I thought this was interesting. I looked in the grocery store and the bread wrappers DO have different twist ties, and even the ones with the plastic clips have different colors. These can be used for all different projects around the house.


You learn something new everyday! So enjoy fresh bread when you buy bread with the right color on the day you are shopping. :)

Thanks for shopping with me and have a great day! :)


  1. Great to know!

  3. Thank you and your daughter for this tip!
    Knowledge is power :)

  4. Okay, ours are always white, so does that mean our bakery only makes bread on Friday LOL?! Great idea for the plastic clips have to remember that one.
