Rainbow Treasures Work For Us

Went to Stop & Shop.  The kids needed cereal.  I'm a really cool mom and let them eat "junk" cereal.  It's just a way of life when you're trashy.  Their favorite cereals are Lucky Charms and Froot Loops.  

These two cereals weren't on sale and I didn't have any coupons either.  I turned to Rainbow Treasures.  This huge, 2 lbs bag is only $3.99, but was on sale for $3.50.  Plus, it comes in no box, so it's more environmental friendly.  

If you don't have coupons and you don't care about generics - remember to look at the "price per pound" or whatever unit to maximize your deal.  This bag of cereal, not on sale is $2/lbs.  Most boxed cereals range from $2.50-$4 per pound.  Sometimes sales will bring the name brand to be cheaper than the generics, sometimes not.  Looking at the cost per unit is a better indicator of true cost - since cereals all come in different size boxes...and bags.
