You are welcome, we pay almost $3.50 or higher and we have a dairy here, and their prices are so high, we can not afford them...and with as much milk we go through with cereal, coffee, and a dh that drinks a glass every morning...I have to find it as cheap as I can...

Cau, both of my girls eat breakfast & lunch ate school free of charge so that helps. DH & I generally don't have breakfast instead an early lunch mostly leftovers then dinner for the whole family of 4. I am getting some help from the food bank.
