Did you know that you can stock up on milk while it’s cheap and then freeze it? Absolutely! As an added bonus, your freezer operates most efficiently when it is full. 😉
I like to freeze the half gallons because they fit so much nicer in the tight spaces of my freezer. All you need is freezer space, milk and a Sharpie. Yes, a Sharpie.
Tips for freezing milk:
1.) Open the container and pour (drink) just a enough milk out so that the carton will not explode during the process.
2.) Take note of the expiration date. Count how many days there are until expiration. Write that number on the carton with a sharpie. Example: if I buy milk on the 17th and the expiration date is 25th, I would write an 8 on the milk. This way when I thaw the milk I know that I have 8 days to use it before it starts going bad. You may also note the date that you pull it out of the freezer.
3.) Thaw your milk for a few days. I leave mine in the door of the fridge and rotate them out as necessary.
4.) Shake and ENJOY!
How easy is that?! If you go through milk quickly, make sure you pick some up every time you visit the store during a sale, and especially on the last day of the sale.
