Milk-getting more for your money

    Recently I read a money saving tip that recommended buying a gallon of whole milk and adding water to it to make it more like the consistency of skim milk.  So you'd pay for the original gallon of milk, but you end up with an extra half gallon or so by adding the water.

    Has anyone ever tried this?  Does watered down whole milk taste the same as skim milk?  Is there any reason not to do this?

    We go through about four gallons per week at our house, so I'm always looking for ways to save on milk!

      Pls do not try to save in this way. It is neither healthy nor tasty.

    Which will get first priority?  Money saved or health?

    I never said anything about putting savings over health...just looking for information on this topic.

    Diluted milk may help digestion. But once it gets digested, water contents, fat, protein and other wastes are separated. Only protein and fat will remain in human body. So, on the surface, it may seem economical; but not true. One and half gallon milk may be equal to half kg. of milk powder.
