I said vacuum.

I suck the air out of bags of bread before I twist-tie them back up. Weird or practical? Or a bit of both?

I don't slobber all over the bags or anything and I'm pretty much the sole user of said bread, but I've convinced myself the less air the better, and without the pesky expense of one of those as-seen-on-tv vacuum guys.
Go ahead and try it. I've had a bag of Aunt Hattie's bread in my pantry for about a month now and it's still in pretty-soft-and-no-mold shape. (Though theirs has an inner bag that I think really helps too.)
Anyone else do this? Or am I alone in my quest, the freshest of breads doing ever-so-little to cushion my descent into madness?
