Stretching milk

Comments Off on Stretching milk

My frugal tip is to stretch your milk. Instead of 1% I buy 2%. When I open a new gallon I pour a quart of it into a pitcher. Then I add a cup of water to the pitcher and fill the gallon the rest of the way (slowly!). There is no taste difference, minimal nutrition difference and it saves us 2 to 3 gallons a month!

Hey! I'm Kacie, wife to Shane and mother to Jonathan (7), Vivienne (5) and Amelia (2) . I write about my family's finance: how we save money, improve our spending, and plan for the future.

I hope I can inspire and encourage you to improve your situation. See disclosure.

I'm adopting a much slower-paced posting schedule, and treating this as a hobby blog now.
