    Great prices, especially on the milk and eggs. Have a blessed Easter Gretchen 🙂

    Gretchen, I always enjoy your meal plans and shopping lists. I have a question though. I notice that you do not buy many beverages or much milk. Does your family mostly drink water? I know with out 5 gallons of milk plus coffee, and tea and occasional juice and soda we could save a lot of money. Thanks for taking time to answer.
