I managed a killer deal at the commissary yesterday. Combining a "found sale" and coupons I knew I had at home, I was able to get two kinds of cereal for 49 cents and 24 cents a box. That's one sweet deal.
I stopped by the commissary a few days ago for milk and walked past the "good deal" area of the store. In two shopping baskets, right there in front of me were two things I knew my family would go nuts for. Wheaties Fuel cereal and Kellogg's Toy Story 3 cereal each for 99 cents. The store had 50cents of coupons for the Wheaties on a tear pad attached to the cart, which got me thinking....I probably had coupons for the Kellogg's cereal as well. I decided to wait and check my coupon stash at home. Boy am I glad I did. I not only found a $1 off 2 Kellogg's cereals for the Toy Story 3, but I also found a 75 cents off 1 Wheaties making the Toy Story cereal 49 cents a box and the Wheaties 24 cents a box. I walked out with 12 boxes of cereal for a little over $5 (we get charged a small surcharge because there is no mark up to cover overhead at the commissary). Can't beat that with a stick.
Do you have an awesome "found" sale? What good deals have you stumbled on lately?
