Total items 20 batteries & 8 boxes of cereal + $5 worth of more cereal
So what do you do with 8 boxes of Rice Krispies?
It shouldn't be too hard to eat all that, especially when you can make MARSHMALLOW Treats out of some of it! It would be a very frugal dessert type treat.
Why pay $4 or so for 1 puny box of premade Rice Krispie Treats that are full of preservatives and chemicals? They aren't that hard to make, especially if you have a child assistant who enjoys getting messy!lol
And if you got the VocalPoint Rice Krispies mailer for goodness sakes, take the blasted coupons OUT OF THE HOLDER immediately! That way you don't have to keep opening it every time you want to use a coupon and have to listen that that voice chip thingy 5 billion times.
It gets ANNOYING REAL FAST!
Do ya hear that VocalPoint??lol
