Frugal Friday: Bread Tag Code

Apparently bread ties serve a purpose other keeping the loaf closed. Fresh bread is delivered to stores 5 days a week and each day has a different color bread tie. The colors are in alphabetical order which will be easy to remember. So, if you went to the store on Thursday, you would want to avoid white tags because that bread would be a week old.

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