Storing home baked breads

How do I store home baked breads for maximum freshness?
I've been baking a lot of my own bread recently. For a while we were devouring it long before it had a chance to go stale.
Now we've scaled back (probably a healthy thing) and I am not sure what is the best way to store it.
Airtight container? Freezer? Do I freeze as soon as it cools?

I keep it in a plastic bag for about 24 hrs, and if there’s any left I slice and freeze it. HTH 🙂.

Would one of the reusable bread bags do?
Onya brand, or the canvas drawstring bags?

I've tried a number of different things but kept coming back to a super large zip lock bag. Not pretty at all but it works.

I’m in a humid climate and bread grows a white mould that’s hard to see. I slice and freeze once we’ve eaten what we want fresh so it probably only a few hours after being baked.

Cut the loaf in half and freeze it as soon as its cooled down. Or just make less.

Thanks for the replies. I made a batch of hot cross buns today and put most in the freezer in a zip lock bag as soon as they cooled.
Just to see how it goes! (And to stop myself binge eating them).
