    Probably no more than 4L a week; mostly used for DH's and my cereal, and occasionally in baking.

    We go through about 12-15L a week. I buy 3 x 3L when I do groceries on tuesdays then another 2 x 3L on saturdays when I do a fruit and veg top up.

    We've been going through about 1L a day lately. DS has just starting drinking cows milk and I'm on a milk binge whilst pregnant add in coffees and we are going through so much. There is myself, DH and DS.

    We go through 2L of milk every 2 days. So about 7L or 8L. For 3 people.

    I buy it every second day.

    I am assuming you would go through more than our household.

    I know it's at least 9L with 5 partakers at the moment. Tend to buy 6L at a time - so we usually have a bread and milk "top-up" part-way through the week.

    Does anyone know what powdered milk is like? I've been wondering if it's cheaper to go that way.

    How much milk YOUR family goes through...20-25L

    About a litre of skim milk per week, for our family of 3. DD has a small drink before bed sometimes and I have a splash in my tea , DH occasionally has cereal but mostly toast for brekky, he doesn't drink tea/coffee etc. I have milk at work in my cereal and for tea/coffee, so we really don't go through much at home.

    Once upon a time though, we went through at least 4 litres a week, back when DD drank milk like it was going out of production and I was home more.

    I feel the need to point out that my DH drinks at least 1L of milk a day on his own lol.
