Where are the best milk prices in YOUR area?

Do you keep track of milk prices at your local grocery stores? If you do, you may find that there is a huge difference in price depending on where you shop. You may be surprised at where the best milk prices really are.

I recently compared the cost of a one-gallon jug of skim milk in my area. Usually the lowest prices can be found at Sam’s Club, Aldi, and a regional chain convenience store called Kwik Trip. Where do YOU think the lowest price on milk was? Scroll down to find out.

    Aldi’s is the cheapest in my area at $1.89 for skim. Wal-mart is $2.35 at least. Use to buy 6 gallons at a time at Costco until I kept getting one to two gallons that were literally spoiled w/ each purchase.

    If you use a Kwik Trip debit or credit card you’ll also get a percentage back! Buying milk and bananas with a Kwik Trip card usually gives us the best prices for these items. Plus, sometimes eggs and butter are good deals, too!

    Farmers Foods (grocery store) in VA. was $3.49 for a gal. of 2% just yesterday. Wish we had bagged milk in our area.

    $1.98 with Pick N Save (Copps/Rainbow Foods… Midwest chain) in ad coupon sometimes, regularly skim is $2.23. Also use a coupon for FREE milk from the previous week’s purchase of cereal/crackers/whatnot. My store does take $3 off my $1.98/$2.23 of milk so I “make” a dollar/77 cents:) I have friends who drink the bagged milk. It would just be messy having to pour into a jug or use the pitcher with it open in the fridge.

    Given that milk is such a staple and the huge fluctuations in price locally everywhere, there should be a mobile app for tracking prices, like there are for gasoline prices. I use Gas Buddy on my mobile phone all the time. Anybody know someone who develops mobile apps?
