  • freezer
  • Sharpie marker


  • 1 Gallon Milk


  • Use a sharpie marker to write on the milk container: today’s date, use by date (3-6 months), how many days until expired.
  • Place the milk in the freezer until needed.


  • Buy more milk than you need when it is on sale and freeze some for later!
  • Use your frozen milk as soon as you can. Don’t let it stay frozen longer than 6 months.
  • Pour your extra milk into ice cube trays (measured) so that you will have the milk cubes to add to recipes! Just put the frozen milk cubes into a gallon size zip lock in the freezer and use what you need each time!
  • Remember that milk will go bad after you thaw it, use it quickly.
  • Don’t try to freeze milk that is on the verge of spoiling, it will still spoil quickly when you thaw it.
  • To thaw milk, place it in the refrigerator on the day before you plan to use it.
  • You might want to put it in a different container after thawing as freezing usually warps the original container.
