Plasticniki buys eight.
It needed to be done
I for one am stunned, disgusted and elated all at once
because i'm not a deviant
because I'm the type of smug twat who bakes his own bread.
never be arsed now. not even that much effort.
if the supermarket is selling them off at 20p (or less) per loaf.
I've bought more than that in one go before too!!
the more I love it.
buy every (thick sliced) loaf you can when the supermarket reduces them to less than 30p
setting 3/4 on toaster: lovely
Use Real Butter
How long does it take you to get through 8 loaves?
like maybe 6 months
someone posted of an ikea bag full of half drunk bottles of non-premium booze they were delighted to have inherited.
And the tins of food arranged in a pyramid?
I really like bread, but don't have sandwiches and never get through a full loaf before it goes off if I use it fresh.
Frozen bread is the answer, and buying it when it's reduced is DOUBLE the answer.
such an annoynace to you?
FUN FACT: an empty freezer wastes (a little bit of) electricity, so it's also best to have it full (of bread, obvs)
after you put 12kgs of room-temperature bread in the freezer
basically plasticniki is single-handedly responsible for the melting of the ice caps
out of frozen bread.
i buy lots of bread when it's reduced, to save money, time and so that i have a pretty much never-ending suppy of beautiful, lovely bread
I'M SOOOO ANNOYED
especially if you only use it for toast (that's the only thing i use the frozen bread for), and you're dumping a load of beans / avocado / cheese / other topping on that toast.
but I was under the impression a freezer consumed the same amount of electricity regardless of how full or empty it was.
I'm no fridge or freezer proffesor though.
the bread essential cranks up the power
as I have 3 or 4 loaves in the freezer.
When I have half a loaf left, I will look for reduced bread when I next go to the supermarket.
because I bought ONE loaf earlier in the week like a normal human being.
if you fancy any bread YOU HAVE TO GO BACK
i probably have enough bread / butter / beans in my house to last me months without going to a shop
Go buy some more before it runs out.
erm...BUTTER??!! You bulk buy butter?
one tub of butter lasts bloody ages in our house
lettuce - basically water, just freeze it
eggs - boils them all in a massive pan and then can keep them in the fridge for a snack
reduced VO5 conditioner - always need conditioner
reduced sandwich fillings (tuna mayo) - doesn't like sandwiches so eats it with a spoon or serves to guests when they come over
i really have got you annoyed huh
would you like a frozen loaf of bread as a truce?
mash em and freeze em
you obvs haven't seen this
who doesn't love beans?
like, lots of people think i'm insane for doing that too
how do you get this bread home? can't imagine carrying like 5 bags of bread on the tube.
My boyfriend and I share carrying the shopping back.
plus other essentials, without struggling
thanks SO much for your concern though!!!!!!!!!!!!
You live only 7 minute walk away from the daily reduced bread!
sometimes they don't have it
also, supermarkets are shit, i hate going in them / shopping in general, so when something's cheap i buy lots of it to save me going back
that's it really
To spend exuberantly on but only in terms of buying one loaf. Youre doing it wronghggggggg.
just let that sink in
unless I'm planning for the end of days/zombie apocalypse and then it's ... still 1 because it'll only spoil.
i thought this was a joke till i went back to the tuesday thread! :)
I don't think I've bought more than two loaves MAX at any given time
You'd need to be mentally fucking ill to buy 8
Will the person who serves me feel sorry for me? If the answer is 'Yes' then I don't buy it. Inspired me to come up with the shortlived blog "suicidal shopping baskets". 8 loaves of bread going out of date surely would put you firmly in the sorry pile.
they last bloody AGES
PN is actually 70% carbs
* or whatever
I expect to see my indie points account credited in the next couple of hours.
I'd like the standard 10% of points issued for glomming on please.
and then freeze it.
Just for the fun!
you'll bring down the full wrath of the Pocketmouse Defence Squad with chat like that
Plasticniki must be feeding an army.
I've just got to pop out, but I'll be back in ten minutes. Would be great if you could wait until then. Thnaks.
but this thread isn't about my bizarre behaviour.
that is full on delusional talking right there.
time to nuke the site from orbit
if you're only eating 4 slices a week.
you should try it U MIGHT LIKE IT
fresh nice bread is so good, why would you live off frozen bread that was shit in the first place =(
(obvs that doesn't get frozen)
as it goes off a lot quicker.
we usually eat that quicker, so doesn't need freezing
Currently watching: Too Ugly For Love. People who are too ugly for love.
What no-one appears to be marvelling at is the size the freezer must be.
I fucking wish I had a chest freezer.
can nevr even get one loaf in there, let alone 8
full of ice cream, quorn stuff, veg, frozen wine and pitta bread
2 x pizza
1 x bag of hash browns
1 x bottle of jaeger
2 x ice cube trays, all empty
3 or 4 loaves of bread
lots of leftovers
also you all seem to think i eat these loaves on my own
i live with my boyfriend who eats A LOT and we often have visitors who might want toast in the mornings, and luckily I ALWAYS HAVE A SUPPLY!
saw that on hoarders once.
(it was actually said pets' own shit D= / ='( )
a true and fair view of how many loaves she has.
Sorry to disappoint you, Ken.
If you have a full chest freezer then you've failed somewhere along the line
I'm pretty sure I could fit an entire deer in a chest freezer.
There is no further need to sell the idea to me.
and covered in reduced bread
and doesn't eat it within a week or two??
too much of the longpig in a short space of time and you could get ill from the prions and stuff
Can't actually fit a loaf in there. Have to empty the loaf out 2 slices at a time into freezer bags and slot them wherever they'll go. Fuck doing that every week.
Ever wiped your arse with gone off bread? Or splooged onto it?
(Asking for my uncle)
she's clearly still buying toilet paper according to the picture upthread
What's the point with all that bread at your disposal!?
someones got dingleberries!
and post sex clean up duties.
Just be careful PN, you wouldn't want a yeast infection.
chapati's got enough texture to really get into the grooves imo
Hand soiled tea towels and past its best frozen bread all over the shop.
just wait until i make a vine based on this thread for you later
YOU PUT DUH BREAD INDUH FREEEEZER
I brought a loaf for 18p just to bang it in the freezer a while ago, it's been taking up valuable freezer space for about a month now and in that time we must have got at least five new, full-priced loaves.
In summary, buying bread to freeze is a mug's game.
to oddly dark shrieking in record time. Well done, odder denizens of our board.
just making a fun joke at the expense of serious internet man, xylopwn, don't cry about it.
pretty good aside from that
i've got fuckloads
feel a bit better
maybe you're alright after all.
I will however concede that I *am* the serious man of the internet.
than can confirm that john terry only eats white bread?
freezing naan you get from the shop round the corner results in shitty naan
freezing scones is great, WHO KNEW
bagels are a bastard to defrost enough to slice then put in the toaster if you want one IMMEDIATELY
hth guys xxx
sure the ones I have bought before did
frozen crumpets go a bit odd
frozen muffins - fine
frozen pastry - just chuck the excess in the bin the first time round, you;ll never remember to defrost/guess whether it is sweet or savoury and then use it
the New York Bagel Company bagels don't come pre-sliced, that's usually what we get
One loaf of warburtons seeded batch at a time is all you could ever want or need, but I'll presume that's been done.
but can't be bothered to make it. Anyone want to do it for a 50% share in the business?
You can do that as the follow-up, perhaps? You're going to have to build your audience first.
I've got literally shitloads of loaves in your freezer
He'd love this.
Sounds like a good plan if you've got the freezer space and only use it for toast.
Someone who gets it.
This is exactly my logic.
look at my post in cry baby xylopwn's face thread
Fresh bread is such a joy, why live off disgusting stale, frozen bread when for a few pence more you can eat fresh? Leftovers go out for the birds.
WHen you toast frozen bread- it seems to make it really dense.
Hardly any difference
and only used for toast which I then top with beans / cheese / avocado
I also buy and eat fresh bread
use the old bread for breadcrumbs and start crumbing stuff
thaw the mountain of bread and use it to make a treacle pudding
Surely all your freezer space is taken up by stuff that actually lives in the freezer?
when you can just make it at home. All you need is a bread and a freezer!
i don't eat it quick enough to keep it non-frozen and don't really see the point if you're just gonna toast it anyway.
but I guess we have to trust you to live your life
Probable audit for PNs freezer in its current state:
8 x reduced price bread loaves
8 x human heads
(LOL, sorry in-joke, couldn't help myself share that zinger hahahaha!!!!!11!!!1!)
limited freezer space with 3 flatmates and all, innit.
Their hungry child :( So Selfish
it's taking 7 loaves away from 7 different hungry children. child killer plasticniki :(
i don't know if anyone has said this yet but i think you're buying too much bread.
also is the bottom of your freezer crumb-town?
fresh bread is so nice mmmmmm
Been sitting for about an hour, maybe a bit less, trying to think of a time I might have bought more than one loaf of bread and Not One Occassion springs to mind. Really freaking me out, scared even :(
...and never purchased a loaf.
Per year and it comes in at about 16, let's say there are about 20 slices of bread per loaf, that means you are freezing about 320 slices (including heels FYI) of bread a year, that is just crazy, why would you need access to that much bread at any one time?
I was just about to hide a pair of wet knickers in the freezer for an experiment/laugh and found a couple of bits of frozen bread...feel so sick right now and a bit distraught, can't bring myself to inspect the bag to see if it was a discounted bag and booked a room in a hostel for the night as just can't be around tonight. :(
actually, gonna log off at 10pm to play Streets of Rage
Thanks for nothing
Would love to chat
Sounds like fun
Are we burning niki tonight or waiting for a full moon?
I've decided I prefer you untoasted.
Did see a guy, about 50 odd, buy 4 loaves of slightly-reduced normal brown loaf though. I nodded at him.
Absolutely nothing wrong with buying in some loaves of bread to freeze for toast purposes.
You're going to freeze it. It doesn't really matter.
because you buy them in packs of fifty thousand?
But you should probably quit while you're ahead.
Especially for someone who wears a dress about once a month :/
I feel quite anxious about it tbh.
NOT anxious about this. I'll just go to the shop.
It was meant to imply you should always be anxious about having no bread. ALWAYS. Bread is important.
Although two loaves isn't the time to be anxious.
Think Theo, think!
(I don't actually care that much as I know you weren't saying it in a harmful way :) )
You always seem pretty unbothered except for things that are botheresome, like job interviews.
Also, picked beta-blockers as I thought they were long gone into the history books, only ever used by 1970s snooker players. :-/
Very much still a thing
(I dunno look it up)
Those supermarkets would throw those loaves away and that would be a terrible waste of food so I think it's really good that you buy them up and help with the food wastage problem and the terrible environmental impact it has!
she's taking food straight of the mouths of our freegan community.
you could try out Pizza Al Forno two doors down. We tried their delivery pizzas a week or so ago. They're good.
but beggars can't be choosers. Me and pn live in a pizza takeaway dry spot.
This is the scene of pn's dastardly bread-heists.
Sodo in Honor Oak need to do delivery.
I dunno how close you live to Vancouver Road but Van Dough set up a van there on Thursdays and sell their lovely pizzas from it.
Don't they know we pronounce Van Gogh properly in this country. FUCKING FUCKING HELL FUCKS! If I went there I'd deliberately go up and ask, "Is this Van Dockrrh"?
Their pizzas are really good.
The ones I make.
