    Does anyone else feel like the price of milk is going out of control? For us it's shifting from necessity to luxury we can't afford. We go through a bag of milk every 2 days, and a 4L bag costs $5.36 right now. Thats $80.00 a month just on milk. Cheese and yogurt aren't much better...

    Does anyone have recommendations as to what may work the best? Here is my scenario: I noticed that I had started to gain a bit of weight, which is no biggie for me because I'm underweight as it is.
