I'm not sure if this is just a North Carolina thing or what, but milk has gotten incredibly expensive! At most grocery stores around here it is over $4 a gallon for skim milk! I spent $4.09 at Target a few weeks ago, and I noticed it was $4.19 at Food Lion. We have found that Costco not surprisingly has the best price at $3.19 the last time we were there, but it is too far away to go too often. So we have been getting milk at Whole Foods Market. Their store brand skim milk is usually about $3.50.
So, I'm wondering, what does milk cost where you live?
