Amazing General Mills Sale + $50 Food Lion Givaway


Last week, I celebrated my 21st wedding anniversary and if there’s one thing I’ve learned, my husband’s grocery shopping trips and my shopping trips look quite different.

Last week, a thoughtful phone call came from him, “I’m on my way home, do you need anything from the store?”

When you live out in the country, having a hubby that thinks like this is a blessing.

“Why don’t you pick up a few pizzas for the guys after their basketball game?” I suggested.

In he walks, two hours later, laden with grocery bags.

“Two pizzas? Really?” I inquire inquisitively.

“You’d be proud of me. I was buying a few things, but then saw this big sale, although I didn’t have any coupons.” (He knew that was in the back of my mind. 😉

I chuckled, and our kids celebrated.

Our crazy high school basketball schedule just finished. FINALLY! Which leaves my guys open to focus on the big games they really care about – ACC Basketball.

Basketball games + Food = March scheduling

Food Lion® is the closest big grocery store to us, so we’ve gotten to know it quite well and my hubby hit on their huge March sale going on from now until March 16th.

Every year, this is the time I stock up on my favorite General Mills products, especially by pairing my coupons with products that are already on sale. My kids are thrilled since I haven’t been buying as much cold cereal, but they know every March our pantry gets filled.
