My family really did not need more cereal, because our pantry is full of cereal. Still, I could not stop myself when I discovered that one of my favorite cereals – Honey Bunches of Oats – had come out with a new cereal, that it was on sale and I had coupons.
One of the things I love about couponing is that I can splurge on products that my family otherwise could not afford. We try only to eat whole wheat breads, and while the regular bread was about $1 less, I could choose the healthier whole wheat bread, because I had a $3 off $30 Publix coupon.
One of the few impulse buys of the day was a Wonka party bags, which will work great for the goodie bags for my son’s upcoming birthday party.
