How do I keep my milk from going bad on the way home on a hot day?

Shopping Order

While grocery shopping, plan your trip around the store to find the non-perishable items first, then the frozen items, and finally other perishable items such as dairy, deli, meat, and eggs. The coldness of the frozen items when placed next to the other perishables will help those items retain their cool temperature longer and lessen the chance for spoilage.
