Store brand skim is about $3.59 per gallon. I like a local dairy brand and it's about $4 per gallon. Occasionally I buy organic and that's $6-7 a gallon. A gallon lasts us a week (with 5 of us) so not a huge expense.

I love tea, it's my winter drink and DH loves iced tea so we can be frugal there. But not frugal: coffee. DH and I are cutting back to save ...

But they always drove older, used cars (my dad to this day at age 79 still ...
