Grocery Geek Presents: Breakfast is Served!

Posted By Jessica Fisher On April 3, 2010 @ 1:25 am In Grocery Geek | 11 Comments

The last two weeks have been jam packed with couponing adventures. It seems that I’ve gone in and out of a zillion stores. I am ready for a restful weekend. The sales weren’t prolific this past week, but good enough to supply some really inexpensive breakfasts.

Albertsons: Buy 7 Kelloggs cereals and receive coupons for 3 gallons of milk. The cereal was $1.88 a box. I used three $1.50/2 coupons, spent $8.66 and got 7 boxes of cereal and the milk coupons. If you account for the price of the milk which I would have bought anyway, I paid about 1.16 for the 7 boxes of cereal.

Ralphs: I went to the 8-hour sale a day early. You didn’t know my name was Miss Doesn’t-Know-How-to-Read-the-Fineprint. While I was there anyway, I stocked up on bacon. It was on sale for $1.97/pound and I had $1 coupons. I got bacon for $0.97/pound. Woo hoo! And thankfully, my husband doesn’t mind stopping at the store on his way home from work. He went to the 8-hours sale on the right day and picked up OJ for $1.88 and eggs for $0.99.

Target: We tried to do the egg deal there as well, but they were cleaned out. C’est la vie….

These purchases, coupled with the pancake and instant oatmeal mixes I made earlier this week [6], should ensure some quick and easy breakfasts over the coming weeks.

Did you score any good deals this week?
