New Total: $92.59

Since realizing that buying organic milk was a little out of my price range I have decided that I will buy most of my regular milk from Whole Foods as their milk is free from antibiotics. Their website says that any cows that are treated with antibiotics are removed from milk production until the antibiotics are out of their bodies- I cannot 100% verify these claims but as a company I do trust Whole Foods, especially exponentially more than regular grocery stores and their antibiotic free claims.

As you can tell, buying food that is free of antibiotics is very important to me. Antibiotics have gone from being used to treat sick animals to being used to make animals grow faster. I don't agree with it and I hate the potential ramifications it can have on all of us.
