Buy Jimmy John’s Bread for .50 Cents

Last fall, my family was eating out too frequently.  We are trying to curb that expense, and one way we do that is by buying Jimmy John’s sub bread for .50 cents a loaf. 

One day we were ordering subs, and I saw an old fashioned looking sign that said, “Day Old Bread, .50”.  I asked if the sign was for real, and they pointed to a stack of bread and said that they sold the day old loaves for .50 each.

Now, when we have an urge to eat out but don’t want to spend the money, we go to Jimmy John’s and buy 2 loaves for $1.00.  There is a grocer near us that sells lunch meat for 2.98 a pound and cheese for 2.99.  We buy a couple varieties of lunch meat (typically only 1/4 to 1/2 pound of each to keep costs down) and create our own subs at home at a fraction of the cost.  However, it feels like a splurge, so the urge to go out is satisfied.

Our family doesn’t usually eat the entire two loaves, so the next day I grind up the remaining bread in the food processor and then store the bread crumbs in the freezer for use in recipes that call for bread crumbs.  Works for me!

  1. I had no idea that sign was serious! Now I’m dying to go to Jimmy John’s and ask about the bread. I love their sandwiches and I think the bread is what makes it!! Well okay the cheese and meat too…….Mmmmmmmmm…… makes me hungry.

  2. Ours doesn’t have a sign, but one day my hubs and I were dining in and they just handed us 2 free loaves. We were like… SCORE!! So we’ve been dropping in and buying them anytime we need them… half of the time they don’t even charge us, too! I love that bread! Tonight we’re having leftover corned beef on JJ’s bread – with a little spicy coleslaw dipped in corned beef au jus. Yummmm! 🙂
