Thrifty Tip - Dry Milk
Long-time readers of my blog know that I buy dry milk instead of regular milk for DH and I to drink. Up until recently, Wal-Mart has beaten Kroger's price by $1.00 per 20 qts. However, Wal-Mart has recently upped their price to $15.99 for a 20 qt box, compared to Kroger's $11.99 20 qt box. This week, Kroger has their dry milk on sale for $11.79. It's only $0.20 cheaper ($0.01 a qt cheaper), but every little bit helps. Just in case Kroger raises their prices to match (or surpass) Wal-Mart in the near future, now would be a good time to stock up if your budget allows. For those who don't currently use dry milk, you really should give it a try. Mix it 50% with regular milk at first, and then gradually reduce the amount of regular milk. At $11.79 for 20 qts, it's only $2.36 a gallon, compared to $3.99 for the "real" milk.
