We go through about a gallon of milk each day around here. So we have been very aware of the rising milk prices. It has recently been as pricey as $3.99/gallon at the grocery store we frequent.
Occasionally, the grocery store will be getting rid of milk that is near its expiration date. They can be as low as 99 cents a gallon. I snatch these up and freeze them to use as needed. I just take one out to thaw in the fridge a couple of days before I will be needing it.
There is a gas station in town, though, that advertises milk every day for $2.99. I try to buy it there whenever I can to save a few bucks.
Also, I keep dry milk in my pantry to use for baking. Whenever a recipe calls for milk, I use the dry milk and save the "real" milk for drinking. If the recipe calls for buttermilk, I just add 1 tsp. of vinegar, 1/3 cup of dry milk, and enough water to make a cup. I leave it for about 5 minutes, and wah-lah! Buttermilk.
