Cheerios!

If you know me you know I love bargains!  I also need to be efficient and organized to get everything done that needs to be done.  So, how do I combine the two?  One of the ways is to buy in bulk.  But this presents storage problems.  Especially, for cereal.  Once I open a humungo box of cereal, it will go stale faster and the box is usually pretty unwieldy.

Enter Cheerios!  They have some brand-new packaging that solves these dilemmas!  New 2 box Cheerios contains two boxes, that makes it easier to store, easier to pour, and I'm not left with a huge box of stale cereal. 

Some other benefits include:
  • By reducing the amount of air in each individual bag, these enhanced containers fit 10% more cereal than before and use less packaging
  • While each box contains more cereal, packaging material has been reduced by over 200,000 lbs, saving 1,000 trees and taking 130 Cheerios trucks of the road, decreasing CO2 emissions

I love the new packaging! The first time I got a little vigorous and tore a little piece of my box, but after I realized I didn't need to be Hercules, they were very easy to use.  I love that box is easier to pour than the other behemoth boxes.  No more spills from my kids!  Way to go Cheerios!

So do I have you craving some Cheerios?  Well, two, count 'em two, lucky winners will each win (2) new 2 box Cheerios packaging (four boxes)!  Cool, huh!
