Two Peas and Their Pod: Got Milk?

Got Milk?

Everyone should know by now that we LOVE a great deal. Well, Smith's and Albertson's both had great cereal sales within the past month so we decided to stock up. Cereal for $1.00 a box, how could we pass this up?? And it was for good kinds too...General Mills and Post! A true bargain! With food prices soaring, we decided that we would get as many boxes as we could.

We started at Albertson's early in May...we bought several boxes the week of the sale, but then they ran out so we got two rain checks to come back. The rain checks were for 60 boxes of cereal! Yahoo!!
In the meantime we hit up Smith's for their sale...we loaded up almost every day of the sale and we have been eating like champions ever since:)

So last night we decided to cash in our rain checks at Albertson's. The first store we went to we had huge success. We got our 30 boxes and the generous guy at the checkout let us use multiple coupons for 75 cents off! So in the end we got 30 boxes for $22.15! Talk about a bargain! 74 cents a box!! This was the deal of the century!!






So we loaded up the car and went to the next store. This time we had a little problem. The lady had to get approval from the manager and he was not happy with our rain check. He said they are not supposed to honor the sale after it is over. We chatted for a bit and in the end he gave us the sale, although he was not happy. He gave us a good scowl, but at least we got the green light to purchase our cereal!! So we ended up with 60 boxes last night! Plus, we had all of the cereal from earlier in the month.


Our pantry is a dream! The choices are endless...we have whatever you are in the mood for. Cheerios (4 different kinds), Kix-kid tested mother approved, Curves, Honey Bunches of Oats (3 kinds), Honeycombs, Trix-they aren't just for kids, Lucky Charms, Chex (2 kinds), Honey Nut Shredded Wheat, Golden Grahams, and Raisin Bran.

So if want to start your day out right with the breakfast of champions, visit the Lichty's:) We have the whole cereal aisle at our house!!

You guys crack me up. That is totally awesome. I've never seen so much cereal at one house before. Now I know why you eat cereal for dinner every night - you have a ton to choose from. I think I'm a bit jealous.
