My kids are allergic to dairy. Well, more like sensitive to dairy. So, we don’t drink cow’s milk in our house. I never realized how inexpensive cow’s milk was until I had to start buying substitutes. Soy Milk is cheaper than Almond Milk, but I don’t want my kiddos having that much soy. And, we don’t even need to talk about how Rice Milk tastes, do we??
So, Almond Milk it is. At the grocery stores, Almond Milk can run from $2.19 to $3.49 for a quart. Yikes!! Lucky for me, (and you) Trader Joe’s carries Almond Milk for 1.99 a quart. So what, you say. That is only .20 cents a quart cheaper. Well, let’s just add this up…4 quarts a week (which is what we use)equals .80 cents savings a week, which adds up to 3.20 a month. No.. that is not a big deal, but when you look at the savings yearly (nearly $40 bucks) that makes a difference. It is the little things you do weekly, that can save you money over time. Who wouldn’t want an extra $40 in their pocket.
…And, my kids are 7 and 5…. if I buy this much milk until they are in college.. I will have saved almost $500 just by buying the cheaper version at TJ’s!!
It pays to save people!!
