Cereal Shopping Bargain!!

I had a shopping success this week. Farm Fresh had this special--cheerios and a bunch of other GM cereal was on sale $2 a box and then if you bought 10 boxes you'd get $10 off to make $1 a box. Plus I had about five $.75 to $1 off coupons, so I bought 12 boxes, plus $2 worth of corn and $4 worth of salad dressing. The total for all items? $12.72. The checker was in disbelief and actually pulled the ad to confirm. Basically, I paid about $.50 a box for cereal. I'm totally stocked up now!
