    Aldi’s is the cheapest in my area at $1.89 for skim. Wal-mart is $2.35 at least. Use to buy 6 gallons at a time at Costco until I kept getting one to two gallons that were literally spoiled w/ each purchase.

    If you use a Kwik Trip debit or credit card you’ll also get a percentage back! Buying milk and bananas with a Kwik Trip card usually gives us the best prices for these items. Plus, sometimes eggs and butter are good deals, too!

    Farmers Foods (grocery store) in VA. was $3.49 for a gal. of 2% just yesterday. Wish we had bagged milk in our area.

    $1.98 with Pick N Save (Copps/Rainbow Foods… Midwest chain) in ad coupon sometimes, regularly skim is $2.23. Also use a coupon for FREE milk from the previous week’s purchase of cereal/crackers/whatnot. My store does take $3 off my $1.98/$2.23 of milk so I “make” a dollar/77 cents:) I have friends who drink the bagged milk. It would just be messy having to pour into a jug or use the pitcher with it open in the fridge.

      buy it when it is on sale. pour out about 1/2 cup into another container and then freeze. it will last in freezer for a long time. set it in your refrigerator about 3 days before you need to use it. i have done this for years. I buy 8-10 gallons at a time. This is for a 2 member family. i love milk. cvs and walgreens usually have a sale on opposite weeks. sam’s is a good place, too.

    Given that milk is such a staple and the huge fluctuations in price locally everywhere, there should be a mobile app for tracking prices, like there are for gasoline prices. I use Gas Buddy on my mobile phone all the time. Anybody know someone who develops mobile apps?

  11. L Ham says

    Watching ads for several months….Walgreens has the lowest price when on sale….just paid 3.19 per gallon. 02/22/2015…seems to go on sale every other week.
