How to get Two Gallons of Milk for the Price of One Forever- Doubling Milk



One grocery item that is almost impossible to buy with coupons is a gallon of regular milk. My boyfriend drinks a lot of milk so we always keep it in the house. The cheapest place that I have been able to buy it is at Aldi but it is still over $2.50 and it usually expires quickly.  But what could we do except buy it anyway? Or so I thought.

Tonight, I came across an article that shows how to turn one gallon of milk into two by adding equal parts milk and water. A crazy idea right? But maybe not. Skim milk tastes watered down to me anyway. Have we simply stumbled on what milk companies have been doing all along?

I tried this last night and it worked! It tasted exactly like skim milk to me. Actually, it tastes better because I believe skim milk also removes some of the fat content. If you don’t like the 1/2 and 1/2 mix try doing 3/4 milk and 1/4 water.

This is a saving money tip that I have never heard of before. It’s little unusual ideas like this that can really add up. If we pay $3 a gallon for milk (on the cheap side) four times a month (most families buy more) that’s $12. If we can cut that in half that’s $6 savings per month or $72 dollars a year that I can spend on something else. And this takes less than 5 minutes to do. People working for minimum wage will work for half an hour to buy a gallon of milk. Your savings rate per hour here is at least $36 an hour.

EDIT- I would link you to the original article but the site no longer exists.

  1. Thank you for linking to my article! I’m glad you found this trick as useful as I have. If you normally drink skim milk, you could actually use whole milk and divide it into 4 parts instead of 2 to get even more savings!

  2. This is such a great idea that I included the link in my new website, which features ideas on “Helping every poor person in need!”

    Unfortunately the site I got this idea from no longer exists.

  4. Hi there to every one, the contents present at this site are really amazing for people experience, well, keep up the good work fellows.
