It’s easier if you make sure you keep them large. smaller than 1 ‘ and they get too crunchy to fast. Best used immediately but can store leftovers for a day or two in a zipped plastic bag . After that , they’ll either dry out or get soggy, its 50/50.

NOTE; If you like seasoning either blend it into the butter , or shake the croutons in a bag with a few tsps. of seasoning soon as you take them out of the oven. Some suggestions are garlic or onion powder , Italian dressing , seasoning or Parmesan and dried Parsley , plain or sour dough crotons made this way are really good with split pea soup.
