2 Box Cheerios {Giveaway} – Frugal Novice

2 Box Cheerios {Giveaway}

We always have cereal on hand as our go-to quick breakfast for busy weekday mornings. And of course, as a bargain hunter it’s very appealing to get cereal in bulk and save money. The one problem I’ve always had with this is how to store the cereal. It typically comes in large box with two bags inside, and it doesn’t fit with the rest of our cereal boxes. Well, I just got to try out the new 2 box Cheerios, which contain two individual boxes, making them easier to store and easier to pour! I am really happy with the new package design, because I can still get more cereal for less money without being stuck with an oddly-sized box.

Not to mention…

  • 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

One lucky reader will win their own Cheerios prize pack with (2) new 2 box Cheerios packaging (four boxes)! This giveaway is open to all U.S. residents ages 18+. Entries will be accepted until the end of the day (midnight Central) Thursday, May 17. By entering this giveaway you agree to the Official Rules.

    The main benefit for me would be that it will fit in the cereal cabinet along with all the other one’s. Sometimes if we have to put one in a special spot we forget about it.
