Cereal Forts are fun!

Listen up newbie couponers….This is the week to stock up on cereal! Shaws Supermarkets has (2) fantastic cereal deals happening on both General Mills Cereals & Kellogg’s cereals. As I mentioned, in this blog post, you should always try to stock up when an item is at its absolute lowest price….and folks this deal is about as low as it gets!

This week (thru 11/8) at Shaws, General Mills Cereals are on sale for $1.75 each (Must buy 4).  We’ve got a few different coupons to use with this deal, plus the best part is that Shaws doubles any coupon under $1.00 all day, every day automatically! For example, if you have a $.75 off coupon, Shaws will take $1.50 off!
