What do you run out of?

I used to buy 10 gallons of milk on my regular grocery trips (every 2 weeks).  There's just not that much room in the fridge!  If I buy 10 gallons of milk,  I can't put anything else in the refrigerator!  I cut back to 8, and then once summer started they started drinking less, so I cut down to 6.  I only bought 5 gallons the two weeks that I had kids at camp (alternating weeks), but now they're making up for lost time!  I bought 7 gallons of milk last week!  By Monday, we were down to 2.  By Thursday, it was gone!

We went back to town this week for a dentist appointment, so I bought 6 more gallons, but 13 gallons in two weeks is CRAZY!

What does your family run out of?  What do they go crazy for?

Milk, but only when Jesse is here, because he drinks so much.

Wow, that's a lot of milk... did you know you can freeze it?  Just take a little off of the top of each gallon (because it will expand when frozen) and put the gallon jugs in the freezer.  It will turn yellow when it's frozen, and it takes a while to thaw out, but once it does it'll turn white again.

We run out of fruit quickly and I don't like to buy too much at once, especially this time of year, since it goes bad fairly quickly.

 Seems like we're always buying milk, bread and eggs.
