Cleanup in the cereal aisle!

Man, I have a hard time when a good deal comes along! I had read Deal Seeking Mom's post about the Kellogg's cereal deal at Target this week and had to see what I could make of it.

According to the deal, selected Kelloggs cereals were $2.66 and ALL Kelloggs cereals are buy 3, get one free. There are several links to Kellogg's Mfr coupons on the post, plus a Target store printable for $1/1 Kelloggs cereal that can be stacked! I also found a Target printable for Chex mix that could be combined with a couple of Chex mix printables from, and a free Pop Tarts coupon I had from an old campaign.

As it turns out, the cereals under the sale price were VERY limited - the Raisin Bran was the only one I had coupons for (my store didn't carry the Corn Flakes Touch of Honey, and the Special K cereals weren't at the sale price). But I still managed to get all of the cereal for an average price of $1.05 per box after coupons, so I'm satisfied :) Here's how it worked out:

13 Boxes Kellogg cereals (2 Corn Flakes, 1 Rice Krispies, 1 Special K Blueberry, 2Special K Cinnamon Pecan, 3 Raisin Bran, 4 Frosted Mini Wheats) - $40.83

Final cost: $13.64, or $1.05 per box!
