Milk is one of those things that has quickly risen in price over the last few months. Used to be that Meijer would have it for sale for $2 per gallon almost every week, with Kroger usually picking up the slack, to where we got it at that price probably 75% of the time.
Those days seem way in the rearview mirror.
We noticed the regular and sale prices creeping up slowly, to where $2.25 was a ‘good’ sale price, then $2.39 a week later, and $2.50 a few weeks after that.
Now, they seem to have cut the number of sales altogether, so the ‘current’ regular price of $2.99- $3.29 is there more often than not.
Since our family drinks a lot of milk (both my wife and I drink it every day plus what Little Boy Beagle consumes), this is a noticeable hit to the grocery budget.
