For Family Home Evening on Monday night Preston and I took inventory of all of our food storage in our basement closet. Throughout our marriage we have stocked up on a few items here and there, but with all of the disasters happening around the world and with all of the talk on being prepared for a rainy day we decided we better shift our efforts into high gear. We found that we have plenty of fruits and veggies and need to load up on higher protein foods and grains. But, we're feeling pretty good after the case lot sales all over town. This is our current stash...Then we got what Preston called "THE best deal of our marriage last night". A lady in our neighborhood sent out an email that a local grocery store was offering 10 Quaker products for $10....which includes cereal (Cinnamon Life is my favorite!), granola bars, pancake mix, syrup, and tons of other stuff. That's a great deal in and of itself, but THEN she found that another grocery store in town had $6 off 10 Quaker items. So guess what?...we combined the 2 deals and ended up getting 50 Quaker products for the low, low price of $20!!! Honestly, we left the place elated! That's $.40 an item!!!!! I'm still amazed.
Now I will just have to find room in my basement closet for 50 boxes of cereal and such! Sorry for such a boring topic, but I'm feeling awfully proud and prepared today!
