For this comparison, I did not compare one brand. Instead, I compared the price of organic milk in general. Here’s what I found…
96 oz. or 3/4 gallon of Borden’s organic milk at Target $5.39, or 5.6 cents/oz. Often times there are coupons for $1 off Borden. These coupons make the price 4.6 cents/oz.
This same 3/4 gallon of Borden’s organic milk at Walmart $5.08, or 5.3 cents/oz. With the Borden coupon for $1 off, the price is 4.3 cents/ oz.
One gallon (128 oz.) of Horizon Organic milk at Kroger $5.99 with reward card ($6.29 without – but does any one not have one?), or 4.7 cents/oz.
One gallon of 365 Organic milk at Whole Foods $5.49, or 4.3 cents/oz.
One gallon of Organic Valley milk at Whole Foods $5.99, or 4.7 cents/oz. If you use their $1 off coupon, the cost is 3.9 cents/oz.
With coupons: Organic Valley milk at Whole Foods with this coupon, at 3.9 cents/ oz.
Without coupons: 365 Organic at Whole Foods, at 4.3 cents/ oz.
Surprised? Sometimes the stores that specialize in organic DO have the lowest organic prices!
How did I find these items’ costs per ounce?
Divide the item’s price (dollar amount – or in this case, cents) by the ounces in the package. This will give you the cents per ounce.
