You should never pay more than $1 for cereal!

Cereal should never cost more than $1.  That’s my buy price anyway.  Okay, there may be moments where I’ll splurge and pay 25¢, but those are few and far between.

The price of cereal jumps around a lot, so don’t focus on all the sale prices.  Just put to memory that we never want to pay more than $1 and look for any deals that fall to that price.  Generally Buy One Get One sales with a good coupon will get us to the right price, or even better are milk and cereal promotions (like the one running through today at Kroger).

Remember, to save the most we need to pair the great $1 sale price with stocking up.  You can’t just buy one box of cereal, you need to get enough to last you six weeks.  Before you panic, we see different brands on sale every week.  So grab a few boxes of this weeks brands and few more next week.  If you are single, then maybe 2 boxes is all you need.  Just make sure that you are getting enough at the sale price to get you through until it’s on sale again!

To help you see that I’m not making this up, here are all the top cereal deals this week.

    • honeymaria

      Thanks for this helpful information. I’m just wondering how I would get 6 printable coupons in order to stock up? Most of the q’s from the paper is $1/2 so the prices are usually not as low as $1. I don’t get how to get enough printables to stock up on anything (not just cereal) seeing as most are a print 2 limit. Help please?

      • Kristy

        You would need an additional computer to print from or multiple papers. These can be printed from the same printer though. It is 2 prints per device.

      • For my family I get two newspapers and we have two computers. So in general that lets me have 4 of each coupon. For cereal there are always coupons coming out, so that’s one product to not worry much about. If anything you’ll find that you always have way more cereal coupons than almost anything else!

    • Lauren

      I live on the East Coast–D.C. to be exact. These posts are very very helpful, however I can’t help but notice that the stores listed with the greatest deals aren’t located in my area. There are no Krogers, Publix, Bi-Lo’s, etc. I did see the good Target and Whole Food deals. We do have those locally.

      • That’s the tricky part of me not covering all the grocery stores in the US. I already cover 31 stores, so taking on more right now makes me twitch slightly, but hopefully someday I can add more!

        • Loni Box

          Lauren, I am new to the DC metro area. I used to use this site all the time when I was in SC and it was fantastic! It isn’t very helpful for us anymore. We use it for Harris Teeter and the drug stores. Food Lion has never really had fantastic deals. I hope to find or start a blog of my own with the local stores deals. Wegmans and Giant…etc..

      Does anyone know if you can use a Kroger cereal Catalina from last week to buy another set of cereal and free milk today? I’m not sure if a new Catalina will print for $2.

      • You can! You can keep buying more and get more catalinas.

        • Sonja Noskowiak

          That didn’t work for us. Instead of a Catalina we got a coupon for $1/4 boxes.

    • Skirnir Hamilton

      And my problem, have you walked into Kroger and looked at that cereal deal? I think the General Mills deal included only Honey Nut Cheerios (Not other Cheerios), of course not Fiber One, or Total, no Chex. If you don’t eat the more kids cereal, it is hard to find much. The Kellogg’s deal didn’t include Raisin Bran. Very, very few actually varieties were included in the sale, at least at the $2 price. Very annoying to me.
