When planning your grocery shopping trip, use coupons, but also read the ads carefully. General Mills will put on a special with their cereal and cereal bars. It is also spelled out in the store ad which came in the newspaper and was also available in the store as you went in.

They had the box of 8 bars 2/$5. If you bought 4 boxes, $10 total, you got $4 back at the register. Then, we had $.50 coupons on 2 boxes, which the stores in my area double, so worth $1 each. The coupons were worth $2.

So, this is how it played out:

  • 4 boxes of cereal bars (8 bars in a box) - $10
  • minus General Mills promotion - $ 4
  • sub total - $ 6
  • 2 $.50 coupons doubled - $ 2
  • paid $1 a box for 4 boxes (32 bars) - $ 4

This promotion was great for the snack packs we make for the kids who go to Shriner's Hospital for treatment.
