Rainy Day Trail Mix with Honey Nut Cheerios! Plus $15 Paypal Giveaway!


Trail Mix with Honey Nut Cheerios

During the summer months there will be an occasion or two when the weather doesn’t allow for me to head out with the kiddos. So what’s a Mom to do when this happens?

At the moment we have some pretty strong winds and rains due to Tropical Storm Colin, so I put a plan into action and also created a Rainy Day Trail Mix with Honey Nut Cheerios.

It is also a good thing that I have groceries on hand just in case I can’t go to the store for the next few days. Thanks to Publix I was able to stock up on cereal due to a Buy One Get One Free Sale plus I saved even more with a $1 off when you purchase 2 select General Mills Cereals Coupon.

Right now you can also take advantage of these savings on newly introduced General Mills Gluten Free Cereal including Lucky Charms and Chocolate Cheerios, plus you will also find favorite varieties of Cheerios and Chex with the Gluten Free Label.
