Bargain of the Week: Cereal for a Buck!

I've just encountered the most incredible deal at Ralph's grocery store when I was there picking up more creamer for my coffee. Standing brightly on an isle display was my very favorite of all cereals - Chocolate Chex. They were on sale for $2 a box. Actually, the sale was 2 for $4 but you still get the same discount whether you buy two or not, so be sure you understand the fine print of the sale before you go and spend more than you are required to. Speaking of fine print, upon closer inspection, I noticed a brightly colored yellow sticker on the box that was an additional coupon for $3 off of 3 boxes which brought the price for 3 boxes all the way down to $3 after the sale and the coupon! What a great bargain, considering that the normal non sale price is usually over $4 a box. We are way stocked up on cereal at this point, but for this good a bargain and for my favorite cereal at that, I may just go back in and get three more boxes to keep and store. I know we'll go through them eventually and will save me lots of money in the long run. Additionally, the sale and coupons applied to other General Mills Cereals as well, in case you are not that gungho on Chex.

Stay tuned for more great grocery deals this week including a special on buying seasonal...

Awesome deal. Ben and I get buck cereal at Fresh and Easy when it goes on sale. It's generic, but yummy.
