Grocery Geek Presents: 50 Cent Cereal AGAIN!

Posted By Jessica Fisher On September 12, 2009 @ 4:29 am In Budget Living,Grocery Geek | 7 Comments

Y’all were doubting me when I said that my target price for cereal was fifty cents [5], weren’t ya? But, looky here! Kashi cereal for $.50 a box. Oh me oh my.

Albertsons has a great deal on Kashi products this week 2/$6 doesn’t sound like a deal, but when you buy 4, they’ll give you back $4. Throw in 4 coupons each for $1.50 off and you’ve got cereal bars and cereal for fifty cents. Yes, ma’am.

Now I did fudge and pay $.88/box for the Jumbo Rice Krispies. I have a little “buyer’s remorse” on those as they seem to have a lot more sugar than the traditional krispies. But, we’ll eat them for dessert some night and call it good.

In other news, I said I wasn’t going to buy any more groceries [6]. BUT….


We were out of milk and most of the fridge shelves were empty, and my poor ears couldn’t handle the children’s cries for food. So, we made a mid-week trip to Costco and stocked up on some great deals for the basics: lettuce, milk, cheese, and eggs are rock-bottom prices there. They also have very good prices on olive oil, chicken broth, and a host of other ingredients.

I guess I’ll save the Eat-from-the-Pantry challenge for actual moving week.
