How many gallons of milk does your family to through per week?

I go to the store Mondays usually and buy 2 gallons. By Saturday were down to half a gallon of the last one and I have to stretch the supply. So this Monday I'm gonna buy 3 gallons and see how that goes. We're a family of four; me and three kids.

So what about your family?

  • Family of 7. At least 4, sometimes 5 gallons/week. My 15 yo ds is a huge milk drinker. I need a cow!

  • Probably at least 4. DH drinks skim and a lot of it and can go through two gallons a week by himself. The kids will usually go through about one and a half gallons a week, and they waste a lot. I use a splash in my coffee, but can easily use either kind. A half gallon would last me a long time.

  • we used to go through 3 or so a week- now it's about 2
    mostly it's hubby who drinks it- the rest of us don't drink it and only use it on cereal or in cooking, and cereal is not something we eat a lot of

  • When I had four 6 and under plus steps (total of 7 kids plus two adults)- a gallon a day.

    Now three who can drink it in the house on a regular basis, 2 a week.

  • Zero. Milk is gross and not good for you.
