How much is too much?
Tuesday, February 22, 2011
I love a bargain! And especially since I'm a full time housewife and mother, I get great joy in finding a good deal. I enjoy clipping coupons and seeing how much I can reduce my grocery totals. I hate having to throw away a coupon that has expired because it feels like I'm throwing away money...the really add up!
My favorite thing to find a bargain on is cereal. I never buy any cereal unless it's on sale for under $2, then I match up my coupons. Usually I can get a box of cereal for 98cents! WOW...that's a deal!!! The problem with this is finding cereal on sale that my family will eat. Sometimes I'll go shopping and won't get any cereal because none of our choices are on sale. While other times I'll go and hit the jackpot and will stock up! It's just kind of a hit or miss situation.
Lately I've been hitting the jackpot with all our favorites!!! In fact, I'm thinking that I have a cereal fetish. What do you think?
Yesterday I counted how many boxes of cereal I have stockpiled. Let's see, there's 6 in the kitchen cupboard and 24 in my bedroom closet. Oh my gosh...that's 30 boxes of cereal in my little house!!! I'd say, that in the event of a long period power outage, that we've got it covered. Or, should I decide to open a "cereal" store, I already have the inventory!
I don't know...do you think I have a cereal fetish?
