Power Up Your Morning With a Good Breakfast & Giveaway

Power Up Your Morning Routine

Our mornings are so busy, especially on week days, since I’ve got to supervise five kids getting ready for school while also getting myself ready for work. I drop the kids off at the bus stop in the morning then go straight from there to the office so we all have to be dressed, fed and ready to walk out the door at the same time.

Breakfast Savings with Publix!

Publix Breakfast Savings

My five kiddos are huge cereal fans and they would eat it for every meal if I’d let them. In fact, the rule at the house is if you don’t like what I make for dinner, you can either starve (believe me, they’re not starving yet!) or fix yourself a bowl of cereal. That means I keep the pantry well stocked with all their favorite cereals.

Eating breakfast at home is always a great value, and it’s an even better value at Publix during the week of September 5th through 11th where select General Mills kid cereals are BOGO!

Offer valid on Trix 14.8oz, Cinnamon Toast Crunch 16.2oz, Cocoa Puffs 16.5oz, Kix 12oz, Honey Kix 12oz, Hershey’s Cookies ‘n’ Crème 10.9oz. Offer available in Publix stores from 9/5-9/11.

Disclosure – I received a Publix gift card from General Mills through MyBlogSpark. I received no other compensation for this post and all thoughts and opinions are my own.


Big G Cereal Prize Package Giveaway!

My kids eat cereal like crazy, I believe they’d eat it for every meal if we’d let them! The thing that drives me nuts though is when they don’t finish the milk in the bowl. It doesn’t matter how many times I threaten them with dry cereal next time if they don’t finish the milk, I still find the occasional bowl of milk near the sink. Well it’s amazing how fast they slurp it down now with their new Curvy Straws that are currently found in boxes of Big G cereal!

The collectible, connectable Curvy Straws are available in specially marked boxes – participating Big G cereals include Cinnamon Toast Crunch® (17 oz.), Lucky Charms®(16 oz.), Reese’s® Puffs (18 oz.), Honey Nut Cheerios® (17 oz.), Trix®(14.8 oz)  and Cocoa Puffs® (16.5 oz).  Those are all of our favorites so it was really pretty easy to hook all of the kids up with their own straws, and the really neat thing is that they can mix and match and share the parts to build different combinations of straws.

You can grab a hot coupon for $1.25 off any two of these cereals for an even better deal on these kid favorites!  Don’t forget to look for the Curvy Straw logo above so your kids can enjoy a Curvy Straw too. Check out the Whole Grain Nation for more information.

I’m thrilled to announce that one lucky reader will win a Big G prize package that includes:

  • 1 box of a participating Big G cereal
  • 1 Curvy Straw
  • 1 `spilt´ milk bowl
  • 2 glow cups
  • 2 tangle toys

Enter to win this Big G cereal prize package – just do any or all of the entry methods listed in the Rafflecopter widget below.  This giveaway will end at midnight on Saturday, April 28th.
