    Hey guys, we live in Karratha so saving can be a bit hard. I recently stumbled across the Kelloggs offer that they have going in Woolworths. Currently we have the 680g boxes on special for 3.20 (the range maybe limited to Crunchy Nut and Coco Pops not sure else where) if you buy 4 boxes you get a $5 gift card. Which means if you purchase 4 boxes at $12.80 and then deduct your $5 gift card you actually only pay $1.95 per box!! The gift card does take a bit to come in the mail, but like me I've had to really reign down on the budget and would account for it, when it did arrive.
