If you’re a cereal fan, visit the drug store instead of a grocery store. Why? According to Christie Hardcastle, owner of drugstore websites including Wild for CVS, these shops consistently have sales. Because cereal is often expensive at other stores, offering them at a lower price brings in customers.

If you live near a warehouse store, you can buy a two-pack bulk of cereal for far less. This is another product that often appears in a grocery store’s sale section. Remember that most processed grains can be eaten far beyond their “best by” date.
