General Mills Shows That Breakfast at Home Makes Cents {$25 Visa Gift Card Prize Pack Giveaway!}

General Mills logo
The information and prize pack have been provided by General Mills through MyBlogSpark.

Although I sometimes (often) struggle with ideas as to what to serve my family for dinner, I can typically rest assured that breakfast won't be a problem.

Who doesn't love breakfast? Your body is hungry after waking from your slumber, the day is fresh and new, and you could just sit there forever marveling at the lovely aroma from your delicious cup of coffee (no coffee for you first thing in the morning? Does taking a deep breath of your toast while in the toaster have the same effect?).

When it comes to that first meal of the day, however, do you also enjoy heading to your local restaurant and ordering your eggs and pancakes that way? You might want to rethink that option a bit when you compare just how much money you could save by having breakfast at home!

Breakfast at Home Makes Cents

Thanks to the Breakfast at Home Savings Challenge going on now from General Mills, it's easy to see the difference it can make in your budget if you shop and eat breakfast at home compared to heading out to eat.

Why spend the extra money on having someone scramble your eggs when you can just reach for your favorite General Mills breakfast items like Honey Nut Cheerios, Lucky Charms and Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereals? We sure do!

kids love cereal

It is even easier to take advantage of great savings in-store and online on some of your family's favorite Big G items now, as they are offering printable coupons and digital coupons that load directly to a participating grocer's loyalty card.

Simply head to EveryDaySaver.com/BreakfastAtHome, select the coupons you want and print them directly from your printer or load them onto your card! Even better, new coupons are added each month, so it pays to visit more than once to keep even more cash in your pocket.

Even though we haven't quite made it through all of the deliciousness that came in our Big G Prize Pack...

My favorite breakfast food is a slice of banana bread (or other quick bread) or soda bread, or a muffin. In the morning, sometimes even making a bowl of cereal is too much, and I like something I can just grab and eat. I do have cereal and milk for lunch quite often, though.
