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"
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!
