breakfast is the meal of champions

At least that is what I will say over the next few months when I am eating cereal for every meal.

But it is soooooo worth it.

I scored 12 boxes of Kellogg's Cereal yesterday at Kroger and received them all for FREE.
At a $3.99 retail value for each box that is $47.88 that I saved!

How did I get them for free?

I printed the $1/1 Kellogg's coupons from and from the kellogg's website.
My Kroger doubles all coupons up to $1 and coupon $1 and over are automatically worth $2!
Kellogg's cereals, select varieties, are on sale for $1.99 this week...making them free for me!

Thankfully we have the storage space for this bounty (and even if we didnt I would MAKE room for free food!).

I also received free Kraft BBQ sauce, 2 free large cans of Dole pineapple slices and 3 12-pack's of Coke products for $4!

I saved over $101 on this shopping trip using coupons and matching them with Kroger sales and clearance items!  It also really helps that my Kroger has a fabulous coupon deal each week.
I only saved 56%, which seems like a lot to some, but is somewhat low for me...but I had to buy extra's for our mothers day cookout for Jeff's family.  Should be a great time, good food too!

And I am going back to Kroger on Sunday to use the remainder of my Kellogg's coupons...I will never turn my nose up to FREE cereal and fruit and super cheap Diet Coke.

Happy Shopping!

Wow! That is a lot of money saved. Maybe you can make a trip to Tallahassee to help show me how to be so economical!
