  • We drink 2% and go through about a gallon and a half a week. If I make cookies or brownies we will go through a full two gallons.

  • Skim and 1%. I drink skim and barely go thru 1/2 gal. The 1% on average, we go thru 1.5 gallons every week.

  • 2% goes through anywhere from 2-3 gallons a week, sometimes up to 5 a week. When my two SS are w/ us, we easily go through 5 gallons a week

  • We get 1% but that might change due to some reading that I've done. We go through about 1.5-2 gallons a week. We don't drink a lot. It's mostly my 6 yr old.

  • My kids drink either 2% or Whole...and we go through at least 1 gallon per week of that. I don't drink milk, but I use skim in my coffee and for cooking...I use 1 gallon every 2 weeks of the skim. My husband has no preference for milk, but he only uses it in cereal, I don't think I've ever seen him just drink it.

  • I don't drink milk too much as my body doesnt' like that lactoce. But I do go through 2 gallons of whole milk a week. I have a 19,17 and 12 year old that goes through the milk

  • I prefer whole milk but buy 2% because my hubby prefers 1%. We go through about 5 gallons a week or so for our family of 5.

  • I drink skim, df and ds drink 2%. We go through 1 gallon of skim and 2 gallons of 2% a week.

  • We'd all prefer whole, but I have been buying 2%, and just yesterday bought 1% (what I grew up on). Sometimes we don't drink a gallon in a week, sometimes we go through 2-3. It varies ;)
