What do you do with bread ends?

Admitting (with much cringing) that I usually toss out the ends of prepackaged sandwich bread. Because the bread is usually whole wheat or a multigrain type, the ends are often on the hard side. Certainly could be made a sandwich of, but I have to admit I usually just open a new loaf. Sigh.
Any ideas of what to do with the ends? I do occasionally toast them on one side and put peanut butter on it (which stands up well to the hearty thickness of the single slice). Another thought it to make bread crumbs (and what? store them in the freezer I guess?), but would like to know of any nifty ideas out there for being less wasteful.
