You Can't Live on Cereal Alone!

Anyone who is familiar with the Sorensen Boys knows that they could argue this statement pretty reasonably! Dan and some of his brothers have LIVED and (might die) on cereal.
Our kids have always "treasured" their trips to Grandma's where there is ALWAYS plenty of stock and variety in cereal.
Being married to a Sorensen boy (a hot one might I add) AND one that can argue nutritional value pretty well...
I FINALLY GAVE IN!!!

***Besides the fact, that this "bread of life" sustains our family while I am nauseated and have little energy to cook dinner- I'm not gonna lie, my kids eat cereal for dinner about once a week!
(There, my dirty little secret is out and I feel no remorse!!!)

Being on a program called Coupon Sense may have sped that process along too. Particularly when we are getting boxes of cereal for 50 cents and under.

We {heart} COUPON SENSE.

After Dan's shopping trip last night~ Dan spent $34, saved $97, and our pantry looked like the above pictures!! You can't beat it!

NOW we just have to work on getting ourselves a MILK COW!

My kids have been eating cereal for dinner too! Anything that doesn't require me to cook, and has no smell is a plus in my book right now. I always make them eat a banana too, just to make myself feel better.

I am so delighted that you are pregnant. I am also delighted that you love coupons! I am so grateful for them.

We don't eat that much cereal and I still buy it for dirt cheap. I can't resist the coupon deals!!

How convenient would that be if your pregnancy craving was CEREAL!!

Ah cereal! Weston eats cereal for an after dinner dessert/snack. I quickly learned as a newlywed not to be offended when my husband was hungry within an hour after dinner. Wish my metabolism worked that fast! Congrats on the nausea!

WOWZERS!! That's a lot of cereal...and what a great deal! I too love cereal, and would probably eat it for every meal if I didn't have a family. In fact that's about what I did in college =)
