My Quick Trip to Vons

I meant to post this trip, yesterday, but then my son came by and we began yapping it up, then we all ate dinner…and the next thing I know, it’s almost 9 o’clock.  I had called Kevin earlier to see if he wanted me to grab him the $0.99 Captain Crunch cereal and of course, he’s like “Oh yes, mom, I want the $0.99 cereal.”  If I hadn’t of called him and I would have bought it then he’d be complaining that I get him stuff without asking  him.

The cashier was chatting it up and she was saying how lucky I was to be getting the items on sale for $0.99 each and I was telling her that I was super happy that the items was still on the shelf and then the cashier and I got distracted by another  customer acting crazy and I’d completely forgot about that I’d be using the $1 cereal zip code advantage. The cashier also only charged me for only one cereal and only one pancake mix. I only paid $1.98.

We haven’t had pancake mix in our kitchen cabinets in like a couple of years and syrup it’s been close to about a year but for $0.99, I thought we could afford to splurge a little!

Add the $1 off cereal coupon to your card and get your FREE cereal or give the cereal to a pantry or someone that has kids.

I ended up with 5 items for $1.98 and that why my blog is called The Accidental Saver!

    How did you get the pancake mix for free? Did the cereal q come off the pancake mix?

      The cashier and I was distracted by a customer acting crazy at the next register so she nor I noticed that she’d only rang up three item instead of five items and I just inserted my card into the machine not realizing I paid just $1.98 instead of $3.96.
