Cereal Sticker Shock No More

Cereal Sticker Shock No More


Have I ever told you how much I love shopping at the Commissary? For my non-military readers, that’s what we call the grocery store located on base/post.  Sometimes, I don’t even realize the savings until it slaps me in the face.  To make matters worse, I’m a horrible coupon clipper, so you wouldn’t imagine my delight at being contacted to share a special program brought to you by General Mills to help military families save even more at the Commissary!

Just this past week, we were totally out of cereal <insert children screaming everywhere>, and I figured I’d just pick up cereal off-base as part of my errands day.  When I went to grab this week’s cereal picks, Honey Nut Cheerios and Cinnamon Toast Crunch, among others, my eyes immediately zeroed in on the price.

Now, I know that cereal isn’t really crazy expensive or some hot commodity, but it didn’t stop me from getting sticker shock. My first thought, “Oh, heck noes! I’m going to the Commissary!”

Yes, I thought “noes”…don’t judge.

The best part of deciding to go to the Commissary? Not only were my cereals $1-2 cheaper, there was even a coupon for $1 off 2 boxes of General Mills Cereal.  I feel like I win the lottery whenever I find an in store for the exact item on my list!

 You know what’s even better than finding a coupon live and in person? Having coupons sent directly to you VIA EMAIL or even better…via text message.
