If you have been a follower of my blog for a while, or live in Canada, this won't be an unusual thing.
One of the way's we buy milk here in Canada is in bags. You get 3 bags of milk which total 4 litres. This particular bag was $5.69 at Walmart. Which is the average price for this type of milk. I bought it on January 10th and it has an expiry date of January 27th. (I compose posts ahead of time.)This is what the bags look like and those three bags last around 7 days in this household
I just bought this milk jug; I obviously bought it with the grands in mind. You pop the bag in and snip the corner of the bag.
So now onto my favourite thing. I bought this milk bag holder from Amazon. It wasn't badly priced at $11.99.
I have had it a couple of months now and love it.
It holds the three bags of milk and it stops the bags slipping around the fridge and is much neater.
Here is where I keep it in my fridge. I have no idea how I managed without it.
We have a Kitchen Aid fridge/freezer. I wouldn't recommend it, you are paying for the name. It is just over 4 years old and I think it was around a year ago we had to replace the container that holds the ice. It had rusted!! They did it under warranty, but not without a fuss!! It has a water dispenser and ice maker; both are must haves for us as we use them all the time. The water is also filtered. I change the filter twice a year at a cost of around $60 each time.
It holds a lot and the two separate drawers are handy.
This is the freezer section and holds what we need. I finally got rid of my chest freezer last year as all I was storing in it was some flour and a couple loaves of bread. I was using this freezer all the time.
We drink/use 1% milk. Do you drink milk? Do you buy it in a plastic jug, or bags, or bottles.......can you buy glass bottles of milk? We can at specialty stores.
