I need to stop buying cereal!!! I have at LEAST 60 boxes, but tonight when I was at Harris Teeter, I noticed that they had Kelloggs BOGO and I still have a couple of rebates AND they had a tag that said spend 30 on Kelloggs, get a Catalina for $3 off milk. How can a girl say no?

Are there people doing that? I have seriously thought that I might! Produce and milk only! I think I could do that for at least 3 months and be fine.

How many boxes?!?!

That's the one thing I don't think I have TOO much of. Although I do have 6-7 unopened boxes .

We have about 30!

Kim said she won't have very much money to spend, Teri said she's trying to cut back and I'm still trying to make up for last month's spending spree. I think there may be a few others who are stockpiled to the brim and are thinking about trying to spend very little next month...provided the deals stop! Although I am to the point where I am out of room, even if the sales are good!

Oops, I remembered another cupboard where I have 7 more stashed, plus I forgot to mention the 6 canisters of Quaker Oats.

How did I not see this BOGO while I was there? Or this tag? I even looked at the cereal.

I'm not sure. I didn't notice at the first HT I went to, but I did at the second. But I wasn't really looking, I just kinda stumbled onto it. It's not all Kelloggs, just Apple Jacks, Fruit Loops, and Frosted Flakes.

That is a whole lot of cereal? Your kids are never going to want to eat cereal again!

I went to go count our cereal, but the 40 boxes of cake mix were in the way, so I decided I didn't really need to count them that badly. I think we're down to around 35-40 boxes now. *bites fingernails* I need to buy more soon.

I'm off my cereal buying kick. I have two boxes right now and I don't plan on buying any more until those are gone. I haven't really been eating it lately-- I'm onto waffles now.

That's a lot of cereal. And here I thought my 8 boxes (plus 2 opened) were bad. I'd better go buy some more

We have ... I don't know how many boxes of cereal. I am simply far too lazy to go downstairs right now and check it out. We have a bunch though, and I love it.

I doubt I'm on board for Buy Nothing month in October. I did one right before we moved, all by my lonesome. It rocks, for sure, but we're not back to far too stocked just yet. I have room. I will have money (I hope). I must shop. LOL.
