    I picked up another gallon at the CVS sale this morning. Froze 2 small water bottles for cooking. $2.79 but I had a $1 coupon from last week - making it $1.79. Plus, it spit out another $1 off coupon. The cashier said I can do 2 deals a week, and still get the $1 off coupons. I will buy another gallon towards the end of the week and freeze a small portion of that one too.

    Milk always runs around $5.89 a gallon here in Anchorage. Fred Meyers/Kroger, Safeway/Carrs have it under $4.00 a gallon, if they have it in stock.

    We still have it for $2.99 but that's an increase of 10 cents over a few weeks ago.

    Oddly enough, my goats milk production has climbed a bit. I expected it to be way down what with the heat. Chickens are laying less.

    Thankfully we don't use a lot of milk. But I have notice the price up a little bit.

    Good time to re-think WHY you drink milk, which, when you think of it, is food for baby cows. Not adult humans.
    We never buy liquid milk. DH uses dry milk for cereal (rarely), I use soy milk for drinking and cereal, we use evap. milk for coffee.

    At $5.49 a gallon it is higher than gas!!

    I'll tell you how no more than 3 cups per person per day...and we actually measure it. HA's started to complain about the powdered milk, so we went back to the jugs...but only buying 6 jugs a week....we do run out about a day before we have to make the next grocery run....then they don't have any choice except to drink the powdered milk until we can get to the store. If the price gets to be too much, then we'll be cutting back on the jugs....I see us gradually going back to the powdered milk. Honestly, its tolerable....but we love the whole milk...and w/ me taking thyroid meds, its an absolute must that I keep up w/calcium or my bones will thin (med side effect). We have 2 out of the nest now and only 8 at home (dd#2 drops by sometimes & eats w/us).
    Milk was 2.95 last week....I haven't been to the store yet this week - ya'll got me spooked.

    Wish I could send you all milk. Krogers has had their milk for $2.49 a gallon for a very long time. And Aldi's has had theirs for I'm guessing 2-3 months for $1.69 A Gallon. I keep thinking when I go back that price is going to be gone; but yesterday I got it again for that price. From what you are all saying maybe I ought to go buy some to freeze!
