Frugal tip - How to save on organic milk (or any milk)

  I read this tip from Thrifty Mom in Boise.  She buys Vitamin D milk and then halves it with water.   I was wanting a way to buy cheaper organic milk so I thought I would try this to see if the kids would notice.  I bought the organic milk.  I poured one of my gallon size glass jars half full of milk then I filled it the rest of the way with our filtered water.  I then filled up the milk jug with filtered water as well.  I shook them both and left them in the fridge.

The kids did not notice anything.  I used it on some cereal (I hate drinking milk) and I didn't notice anything.

Success!  Of course my husband went to the store and he couldn't spend the money to buy organic milk so he bought regular milk and we did the same thing.  Worked out fine.

The better question is - why haven't I been doing this for years?


  1. I've been trying this, too, though not quite by half. My eldest is a milk drinking machine.

    I will continue to push it:)

  2. I'm glad this works for you. It has saved me a ton in $ as well as trips to the store. My kids are milk drinking machines too.

  3. This is SO smart! We go through a few gallons or organic milk a week, so this would save some big bucks. I'm going to give it a try. Thanks!
