Cheerios Gluten-Free Breakfast Cereal

If you love cereal for its convenience, but also need to keep gluten-free, Ramhold recommends these Cheerios.

“You’ll get two 20.35oz boxes for just $4.34, which works out to $2.17 each. That’s an excellent deal considering elsewhere you’ll have to pay around $4.78 for a single family-sized 18oz box or even as much as $8 by shopping certain stores through services like Instacart. Don’t wait too long on this one, though-the offer is only good through March 17.”

If you’re giving up beef for Lent, or just enjoy seafood, now’s the time to jump on this great deal at Sam’s Club on a 3-lb. bag of easy to peel, farm raised frozen shrimp.

Because they’re frozen, you can cook just a few and save the rest for later, or use the whole bag. Whip up some rice and veggies or go surf-and-turf, a seafood paella or simply saute with garlic and butter! Just $16.98 for the bag.
