The Special K Cereal ended up being a better deal than I planned.  The Cashier took off $3.20 for each of the BOGO coupons, so my pretax total for the 4 boxes of cereal was $.16!!  The Swiss Miss was a money maker.  $2.00 was taken off even though each box was only $1.49.

I am trying to stock up on easy fix items in preparation for our baby.  I am planning to use items from my pantry and only go grocery shopping for fresh produce and dairy for the first while after he is born.
