These words are said at least 2 times a week (if not more) in this house. Besides ketchup, it is the one thing we can't keep in stock around here.
Luckly for me, Ralphs was having a nice deal. Buy any 4 General Mills/Pillsbury (and a couple of other brands) and get a free gallon of milk.
While some of the products had their prices jacked way up, there were others that weren't quite as bad. Especially when combined with coupon.
In the end I got:
4 boxes of cereal
4 boxes of Toaster Strudels
4 bags of Pillsbury breakfast scrambles
4 boxes of yogurt
4 gallons of milk (I checked and I was able to get chocolate as well!)
and my regular 3 LA Times Weekend edition
After coupons and green bag discounts I paid $35.xx
I was super excited. By keeping an eye out for the cheapest items that qualified, I didn't pay too much more out of pocket, than I would have to buy the milk.
Since this deal lasts until Tuesday, I may get some more. I have heard freezing milk works perfectly fine but have never tried it. Have any of you? Any tips?

***BTW: if you want to go and get in on this deal, but you/your family don't drink regular cows milk, you can get a half gallon of organic milk instead.***
