Plan all your meals, using up as much as you have stocked in your freezer and pantry. Make a list of other stuff you need before you go to the store and don't buy ANYTHING not on the list. Don't go down any aisles that doesn't have something on your list. Challenge yourself to make at least 2 or 3 meals a week using only what you have on hand. If you see something at the store you jst absolutely need and it's not on your list, write it down and put it on your list next week.
I'm a big impulse shopper too, and meal planning has really helped me stop buying so much crap and wasting so much food. Another thing that's helped me is that I signed up with an organic delivery service. I try to get as much as possible delivered so that when I go to the store I'm only buying a couple of things. If I can avoid going to the store at all, then I end up saving a lot of money because I can't impulse shop. I have to order my groceries on Saturday and don't get them until Tuesday, so that's made me start really planning ahead and planning meals through the weekends too. We used to eat out every meal on the weekends.
How much milk are you drinking??? How big is your family? Do you drink 5 gallons of milk a week???? Can you drink water instead for awhile?
