My husband and I are both training for a 5K right now so we’ve been eating like horses. (It’s a good thing we’re not training for a marathon because I can’t even imagine how much food you have to consume for that sort of training schedule! I am considering going for a half marathon, but I kinda have to make it through a 5K first, ya know? :))
Anyway, Jesse asked the other day if I could start buying more cereal since that’s a nice snack for him when he’s hungry in the evenings. Well, I have to tell you that my stomach did a little flip because I knew that cereal deals have been scarce in these parts for the last number of weeks and the thought of paying full price for a box of cereal was quite disturbing to me.
I know, I know, what is wrong with me? I’ve gotten spoiled by coupons and good deals, that’s what it is!
Gratefully, I only ended up paying $2.19 for some organic Cascadian Farms cereal on sale and $1.50 a box for the Kellogg’s Crunchy Nut cereal. And now I’m going to be on a hunt for cereal deals in our area since I really try never to pay more than $1 per box! Holler if you’re local and find something good or shoot me an email if you find something online. My husband will be extremely grateful. 🙂
