#2 Coupon for $1.00 of General Mills Cereal
General Mills and MyBlogSpark sent me information about how great it is for kids to eat breakfast cereal every morning, as well as coupons for free cereal. We tested Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Chocolate Chex, and the Muli-Grain Cheerios. I think the Cinnamon Toast Crunch is too sweet for my liking, and I’m still not going to feed it to my 14.5-month-old daughter due to the sugar and processed content, but my husband loves it and I feel a lot better knowing he is getting a lot of needed vitamins. The Chocolate Chex are fun–gluten free and made with actual cocoa instead of artifical flavoring! These are good and not overwhelming as the chocolate flavored ones are mixed amongst “regular” chex pieces. The Multi-Grain Cheerios are my personal favorite, with 100% of an adult’s daily iron plus a bunch of vitamins. They’re slightly sweetened and it’s not too much. I also appreciate that you do get a variety of grains in the cereal!

Correction as of 1/20/10: in my original version of this post, I commented that General Mills Cereal now has a reduced sugar content. Since posting, I’ve become aware that the reduced sugar cereals are in the works and have not been released yet. So keep your eyes open for when the reduced-sugar versions of our favorite cereals are released to store shelves!

#3 Free Candle
You can get a free Serenity aromatherapy candle (Lavender and Ylang Ylang, 2.75″ x 5″) from the Free Aromatherapy site. Thanks to http://www.littlepeoplewealth.com/ for alerting me to this find! Don’t ask me why a t-shirt shop is giving away candles…
