My Own Lame Mastercard Commercial

Ten boxes of cereal = $10

Five gallons of milk = $7.50 (that's right, only $1.50 per gallon; hie thee to a Safeway today)

Five bags of Goldfish = $5 (Chuck loves the Goldfish in his lunches)

Finally, to have a house where this will actually fit in pantries, storage, and an upright freezer rather than in over-filled coat closets = Priceless.

Can you guys go through 5 gal of milk before it goes bad??? (or are you freezing that - can you freeze milk?)

Either way, that's a lot of food you've got there! It would fill my little kitchen to the brim! Enjoy your space!!!

yep, you can freeze it. but even with that much cereal, we'd never go through six gallons of milk. (i bought another one just now.)

I would love to see some "priceless" pictures when you get a chance!

emily said...

awesome. i can't believe those deals! by the way, your milk looks more like OJ in the pics.

i liked your commercial.

Sandra said...

Wow, great deals! I didn't know about freezing milk either. I'm going to give it a try.

just a word about freezing the milk....it does expand a little. you might see that in the picture, the bulbous containers. also, my mom said that it separates, but give it a good shake when thawed and you should be fine. and make sure to thaw it in the fridge. although my mom doesn't and i'm still alive. my mom's kitchen habits are another post! ha.

What great grocery deals! All from Safeway? Awesome!

I am jealous of all the room you now have and that milk was so cheap. We pay $4.50 a gallon here.

so funny--I freeze milk all the time and people are constantly shocked by it. I love it when I get great deals on it and stock the freezer! Our milk is 4.24 right now. With four kids, it's a nightmare...

I've heard about freezing milk but never had the nerve to do it. since our chest freezer in the garage is rather empty, I should try a few jugs at least!
