    No big fridge. I get milk, bread and fruit everyday on my way home from the school pick up. By going straight after school means I miss the 20 minute traffic jam on my way home.

    We go through 1ltr per day now that there's no more toddlers hogging the milk for a bottle.
    I buy the longlife milk in bulk on my weekly shop.

    We mostly use it in tea/coffee and hot or cold chocolate.

    Wow 24ltrs!!! That's amazing! We go through 2ltrs a fortnight if that. Sometimes I've thrown it out. It's so random. Sometimes my son will have milk everyday sometimes I'll use it in cooking. I use it one week past expiry as it's still fine sometimes so sometimes we go through 2ltrs in 3 weeks.

    How much milk YOUR family goes through...20-25L
    We use powdered milk all the time. Tastes fine. We go through about 12-15L per week so I just make up a new fresh 2L jug every day. Much more convenient than having to buy milk all the time. We make the milk up in 2L Sistema jugs.

    We buy it raw from the farmer (from a London farmers market) on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

    Maybe a litre of cows milk and a litre of soy milk per week.

    Not big milk users or drinkers here.

    I buy 2L of A2 for my toddler, 2L of light milk for hubby and 1L of regular full cream for me. I only use it for a smoothie 1-2 times per week and cooking, toddler has it on her weetbix or porridge and a cup before bed and hubby drinks it like he thinks milo is healthy. So we usually have some leftover each week but not much.

    2 adults 2kids. I buy 2l at a time and we are lucky to finish it before it expires. Hubby has it in coffee, use it to make porridge in the mornings and the kids have a small cup in the mornings. Not big milk drinkers at all.
