Something that’s on my grocery list every week is milk. It’s one of those things that can’t be bought in bulk when it’s on sale and stashed in the basement. The price of milk has been going up for awhile now, but I try to keep an eye out for good prices. While looking at the sale ads online, I noticed that Aldi’s had milk on sale for $1.79 a gallon! We now have four gallons of their milk in our fridge.
It’s amazing how much the price of milk can vary, depending on where you get it. I could have paid $2.49 for a gallon of Meijer milk, $2.87 for Walmart milk, or a whopping $3.99 for Country Fresh. It really does pay to be familiar with the regular price of food items and look at the sale ads for the best deal on them each week.
