    1. If it helps..I just came from Target(NC)..they've got the Quaker True Delights for $2 (reg. $3), and if you buy 3 boxes, you get the 4th for free. With that $1 off coupon, you get them for $1.25 each! I'm using them as gifts for snack day during Teacher Apprection week at my son's school.

    2. Thanks for the link love Cathy! :)

      @Zena – Thank you so much for sharing that deal! And thanks for reminding me about Teacher Appreciation week – I forgot that that's coming up really soon!
