I’ve just moved into a school district where milk costs about a dime (okay, maybe more than that, but not by much), whereas the district we lived in before charged about $.75. And for your $.75 you got processed, hormone- and antibiotic-laden milk. Yuck.
(I have a thing about organic milk. I don’t want my daughter to have boobs in elementary school, okay?)
I used to send water or juice in the kids’ lunches, even though I really wanted them to have milk, because I couldn’t stand the price or the quality of the milk the school served.
Through the month of August, you can get a deal at Amazon on qualifying Horizon and Silk products. Little portable drink boxes of organic cow’s milk or high-quality soy milk, for way less than what you’d normally pay. And if you haven’t done the organic milk thing before, let me tell you a secret: It doesn’t have to be refrigerated! (It tastes best cold, of course, but you can throw it in a lunch sack and not worry about it going bad. Plus it lasts for months on end in your pantry.)
Coupon code ORGMILK2 takes $20 off of your $39+ order, but right now all the eligible stuff is $25/case. Still, you can get 2 cases—that’s 36 single-serve cartons—for $30 shipped. More than juice, but not bad at all for milk.
