Simple Suggestion #215... Use those bread crusts

If your house is anything like my house, for some reason, the crusts of the bread are often left in the bag after the loaves are gone. Sometimes I eat them for lunch, but often they're not big enough to make a sandwich. It's tempting to throw them out, but if you're living a simple and sustainable life, wasting things is not an option. After all, waste is a justice issue -- it's simply unjust to leave our planet in worse shape than we found it, or to throw things away when they're still usable, especially when they can be reduced, reused, or recycled.

So we don't toss our bread crusts out because they can be a valuable resource. Instead, we dry them out and store them for future use. They can be easily turned into croutons or crushed into breadcrumbs, and made part of different dishes that our family likes to eat.

To me, this suggestion seems too obvious, but I guess that's a sign that it's just plain simple.
