AHHHHHH!!! I am so excited! I just spent $2.19 for 6 boxes of cereal and a gallon of milk!
How is that possible, you ask? Well, let me tell you.
After church tonight we stopped at Weis Markets for a few things. While we were there, we noticed that they had lots of their GM cereal on clearance, for $1 - $1.84 a box. We got several boxes among other things and while we were checking out, we got coupons for 2 free gallons of milk. They are having this promotion now that if you buy 3 boxes of GM cereal you get one gallon and if you buy 6 or more boxes you get 2 gallons. While we were loading our groceries into our car, I noticed a coupon for $1 off 2 boxes of GM cereal. My kids love to get the coupons out of the machines in the stores and pretend that its tickets or money.
So, I went back into the store and got 6 more boxes of cereal. I used 3 $1 off coupons and one of my free gallon of milk coupons and my total was $2.19.
Granted, the cereal that we bought is sugar laden and very non nutritious but I justified it by knowing that it is fortified with vitamins and minerals and that I paid 50 cents to a dollar per box. Everything is okay in moderation, right? Okay, I guess 16 boxes of sugar laden cereal is not moderation!
