Quaker Oatmeal Cereal Coupon: 160 Boxes of Cereal for $1.97

I continue to be the coupon king of cereal (now if I can just learn to expand this to other foods needed by food banks) by utilizing a bunch of rainchecks I received last week. A wonderful reader who wants to stay anonymous said that she could provide me with as many $1 off coupons for Quaker Oatmeal cereal as I needed which were available from a Sunday paper insert a few weeks ago.

Since I couldn’t get the coupons before the sale was over, anytime I went to a Safeway, I checked to see if the Quaker Oatmeal cereal was in stock. If it wasn’t, I asked for a raincheck. This week I took the rainchecks and the coupons to get 155 boxes of Quaker Oatmeal cereal (a $618.45 retail value) for free:

I also made a trip to CVS where I was able to get 5 large boxes of Multi-Grain Cheerios for $1.97 after coupons and using a raincheck. That meant that all together I purchased $640.90 worth of food for $1.97 and immediately took it to the Milpitas food pantry (since I didn’t feel like living in a room full of cereal again)

This is another tiny step toward the Penny Experiment goal of $1 million worth of food to food bank and leaves $993,677.28 to go…
