I don’t know what it’s like in your home, but around here we drink a bunch of milk! We go through about 2 1/2 gallons of milk per week, and that’s only because we are on a budget!
Milk isn’t cheap either. But there is a way to make your milk money stretch almost twice as far.
Wanna know the secret?
Water it down.
Seriously! Water it down. Instead of buying skim or 2% milk, buy whole milk and then dilute it with water.
Before pouring milk for cereal, or to cook with, I add about 1/3 cup of water to 2/3 cup milk. For the kids drinks I just fill a cup about 3/4 full with milk, and then hold it under the faucet for a second to fill it the rest of the way with water.
The change is hardly noticeable (the kids have never complained), but the savings can really add up!
