Smile Milk is expensive

...but I love it.

Here's a little trick. Buy whole milk and use equal parts milk and cold water whenever you use it. It really stretches it and is basically like just drinking lowfat milk.

I'm not sure about you guys, but I generally don't drink milk alone. I use it for shakes and cereal and it tastes just as great this way and DOUBLES your buck Try it and see for yourself!

I was just at the "dollar deal" store the other day and a gallon of milk was $4.25!

The cheapest I can find is when CVS has it for like 2.99 with your card. Sometimes 1.99. Just keep check the Sunday ads and when they have those sales stock up. Milk will freeze so if you have a deep freeze you can get a lot. You must have a cvs extra care card which is free. all you do is go in and tell the cashier you want to sign up for one and you get your card right there.

Does anyone know if you freeze milk how long will it last if it goes beyond the expiration date?

I'm going to chime in because I'm going broke buying milk. Both kids are milkaholics and I buy organic. Cheapest for me $5.69 at Trader Joe's. I may try adding water and see if they notice.
