Joanne and I are not morning people, ever. When Zadey started school we struggled with our morning routine thinking we’d get up early and make her the breakfast spread… Every. Single. Day. Have any guesses how long that would last? Yeah, not even a week.
Luckily, Zadey (and all the rest of us) is a huge cereal fan. Our house is loaded with a cupboard full of a variety of cereals to fit any mood. Because, seriously, cereal is good for so much more than breakfast.
It’s a dry snack for the kids, it feeds the late night sweet tooth, and it’s a quick and easy meal for any time of the day. I dare you to find a moment when cereal won’t fulfill your hunger.
It’s that awesome.
Since Joanne has taken on the stay-at-home Mom position in our family, she’s decided that she’s also going to tackle couponing and saving money since we’re now working on my income alone. She has even attended a seminar put on by a woman locally who does those mass coupon shops and has herself a stock room.
We are not that good. But, she has managed to save us quite a bit by clipping coupons and using Ibotta.
Ibotta. Who knew? I had never heard of the app until Joanne came home from her coupon seminar talking about it. Are you using this?
Well, Ibotta has a rebate for the General Mills® cereal line-up offered at WinCo. It was a deal we had to take advantage of with how much cereal we go through during the week between Zadey’s morning breakfast and the boys’ snacks.
Yes, that’s right, we go through so much cereal because of those tiny people living in our house. It has absolutely nothing to do with me.
Cheerios®, in all the different varieties, is the popular favorite in our house. And, using the Ibotta app, we were able to claim a $1.00 rebate instantly while shopping at WinCo.
Save on Cereal at WinCo
I love shopping at WinCo and grabbing tons of great deals on a variety of products. But, for us in Bakersfield, WinCo used to be a bit out of the way. Now, we have a brand new WinCo less than a mile from our new apartment! I’m so excited to have it so close by.
And, from 4/15/14 to 5/25/14, we’ll be able to visit WinCo to pick up select General Mills® cereals and save using the Ibotta app. Each week there will be a featured cereal that you can redeem for $1.50 and if you buy 5 cereals, you can redeem an extra $2.50! How’s that for money back in your pocket for extra groceries?
Fulfill Your Cereal Cravings
When I was a kid, we always had a variety of different cereals in our house. With 6 kids, just one kind was not going to please us all. There were times when my mom allowed us to make our own requests for food and when we did, we took our food to our room so we didn’t have to share it with our siblings.
For me, my request was always Honey Nut Cheerios®. And, call me an odd-ball, but I have always enjoyed it dry as a good crunchy snack. I cannot tell you how many times I could be found, after school, with a bowl of dry Honey Nut Cheerios® working on my homework.
Now, when the sweet tooth hits me, after the kids have gone to bed, I continue to do the same thing. My mom calls it my popcorn (but it is so so much better than popcorn).
What is your favorite General Mills® cereal to snack on?
