Default keeping bread fresh

HOw do you keep your bread fresh?

i just made two large loaves of wheat bread and I'm the only one in the house that eats bread. So I want to freeze one loaf but how do you keep the other one fresh? Do you wrap it in foil, a ziplock bag???? store it on the counter or in the fridge?

A Ziplock bag with the air pressed out of it seems to keep fresh bread for about a week in my house, on the countertop! My kitchen's on the chilly side this time of year, though, so you may want to stick it in the fridge.

my house is kept at 65 all day so it should be fine on the counter?

I would think so! The only thing that really made bread on the countertop stale around here was when DH accidentally zips a big bubble of air in with the bread. As long as air is out, the bread should be okay!
