Frugal Grocery Budget Savings: Powdered Milk

So far my grocery budget has worked well. I haven’t had to run to the grocery store for anything yet but I noticed we were running low on milk. When we had our second fridge/freezer in the garage, I was able to purchase milk and store half gallons in the freezer. Since that fridge/freezer broke down and it wasn’t worth the money to fix, I’ve been just using the one in the house. So when it comes to buying milk, I’m down to just buying two gallons.

So with just a little bit of milk left in the fridge, I decided to give powdered milk another try. I tried it before with just straight powdered milk and couldn’t fool my kids and had to use it just for cooking with because they wouldn’t drink it. This time, I’m trying a mixture of 1/2 powdered milk and 1/2 real milk to see if they notice. So what do you think the odds are of them noticing the 50/50 mixture?

Powdered Milk

 Clearly, I won’t tell my kids about this little experiment. So after I mixed the 2% milk with the powdered milk, I used a permanent marker and put a black dot on the milk jug and placed it into the fridge to get cold.

I’ll let you know later in the week how my experiment goes. Hopefully, they won’t notice the difference and this will be an ongoing way to frugally save on our grocery budget.

Does your family drink powdered milk? Do they like it or not like it?
