Milk upgrade

While Jake and I were at Kroger the other day, we stumbled across milk that was reduced for quick sale. The milk was in glass bottles and came from a local farm. We decided to purchase it since we needed milk and we figured it wouldn’t hurt to try it out.

The milk is amazing. It is so creamy it actually tastes like real milk, as opposed to the watery tasting Kroger brand milk. Did I mention it’s hormone free? I also love the fact that it comes from a local farm so we’re supporting the local farmers and local economy by purchasing it. Additionally, the glass bottles reduce waste since they can be reused over and over again. We do have to pay a $2 deposit for each bottle, but we get the money back when we return the bottles.

Perhaps the best part about the milk is that it only costs an extra $.40 a bottle (compared to Kroger brand milk) when it’s not on clearance. We’re gladly making the frugal choice and paying the few extra cents to take advantage of all the local milk’s benefits.

Check and see if your grocery store offers milk from local farms. Give it a try if it’s not too expensive. Chances are, you won’t go back!

We recently upgraded milk too. Unfortunately not a local brand, but Organic Valley hormone free milk is creamy and delicious and the best milk I’ve ever had. 🙂

P.S. Just found your blog and love it
