I challenge myself to pay no more than $1.50 per box of cereal. So far, I don't think I've had to go over that price point all year. I sometimes buy cereal at ALDI in the discount aisle, where I've found house-brands of cereal for 99¢ per box or even 50¢ per box. But most of the time, I buy cereal at Publix which is on a buy one, get one free sale. And I only buy it when I have two high-value coupons.
Honey Bunches of Oats is one of the cereals I've been able to buy often at that price point. Before I started couponing, I don't think I had ever bought that brand. But now, when it's on sale for buy one, get one free at $4.49, that means each box is $2.25. When I have two $1/1 Honey Bunches of Oats Fruit Blends Cereal printable coupon, that means each box is $1.25 Or if I have two $1.10/1 Post Honey Bunches of Oats New Fruit Blends printable coupon, it's only $1.15 per box. (Publix allows two coupons for BOGO items; check with your store to see if this is allowed.)
So they're affordable, but how do they taste? I had the opportunity to try Honey Bunches of Oats - Honey Roasted now with More Granola Bunches. In order to make sure I had the chance to try it before my crew ate it up, I had to hide the box on the top shelf of my pantry. I had a bowl and of course, it was delicious! Lots of granola bunches (more than I remembered!) mixed in with the cornflakes, with just a hint of sweetness. But of course, my family quickly found the opened box and devoured it.
I'm hoping that maybe you'll have better luck at keeping your family from scarfing down the box. So Frugal Follies is hosting a giveaway for 5 free boxes of Honey Bunches of Oats cereal!
