Cereal Serial

This morning I stopped by the grocery store on my way to work to pick up some milk and bread. The milk was a loss leader at $1.99/gallon and the bread was on sale for 4 loaves for $5. Living in a house of boys, we go through a LOT of milk and bread. Usually 2-3 gallons and a loaf a week.

We also go through a lot of cereal. All three of them eat it almost every morning. DH can down half a box in one sitting and SS#1 is running a close second. The Manimal mostly likes to pick the marshmallows out of the Lucky Charms.

I hadn't planned on buying any today, but it was on sale too. Four boxes for $10. Around here, that's a pretty doggone good deal.

And then I saw the sign:

"When you buy four boxes, the cost is $6"

SIX DOLLARS?

Be still my heart.

I had to find a clerk to double check my amazing find. I mean, it was like I was the only one seeing this bargain. Surely my little family can't be the only one that inhales cereal (or picks the marshmallows out of the Lucky Charms) like it's their last meal.

Sure enough, four for $6! I bought eight boxes. Then I stopped after work and bought eight more.

I figure it should last a month if I'm lucky. Stay tuned!

Love the new blog look! You've been busy! Your header is to die for! I just love it! The colors are really cool too!

Was just getting caught up on all the posts I've missed. I did Mama Kat's Writer's Workshop this week and that got me behind on my regular blog visits as I felt that I had to visit lots of the other participants.

I love that you got this deal and checked to make sure you were reading it right! I would have done the same thing! And don't you feel like you are doing something wrong or illegal when you find stuff like this? I always feel like I'm doing something that will later catch up with me. Like this week, we found Holiday M&Ms on clearance at Target for 69 cents. The 14 oz. bags. I felt like I was robbing them!
