  • I use them threw out the month. Why would you use them all at once? The milk would go bad.

  • We use it on the two weeks that my husband doesn't get a paycheck. We use half of them each time.

  • i dont see how it woudl be wise to use them all at once except if its formula bc that doesnt go bad and saves you a trip to the store later on.

  • I only use 1 or 2 checks at a time, if for some reason I have a few that are about to expire I will go to the store early in the morning when it is least busy

  • I only use 1-2 per week. I don't want to hold up the line at the supermarket, so I don't want to use them all at once.

  • I also use all of the formula ones at once, and spread the others out throughout the month.

  • We spread them out, but it's rare that we honestly use all of it anyways... So there is no reason to use them all at once cause it would just go to waist. I would much rather just buy what I need when I need it.

  • You can do it all at once. Cheese, milk and eggs can all be frozen.

    That's if you want to. I always used the formula checks at once, the rest spread out.
