Jugs or Cartons?

When you buy the milk, do you buy the two gallon jugs or do you break it down to four half gallan cartons? Because I always find that buying the jugs the milk goes bad quick so I get the cartons.

  • i think it depends on how quickly you use the milk. my family can go through a gallon in two days, others not so much.

  • Milk here comes in 1 gal, half gallon and quarts. I buy what's cheaper. So the one gallon.Milk here mainly comes in plastic containers. No cartons. However at one cheese factory today . They sell milk in gallon (glass) bottles. But its too expensive!

  • We buy 2 or 3 gallons a week. We go through it fast so it very rarely goes bad!

  • Gallon jugs. We should buy 1/2 ga cartons though because only DH and youngest son drink dairy.

  • I used to buy half gallons,but since my son came back to live with me I buy one gallon plastic jugs. They are easier to handle. I only buy a gallon every 10 days. We are not big milk drinkers.
