solutions to three little problems …

Problem:  My cereal/chips/cake mixes etc. cabinet sometimes gets too full.

Problem:  The Special K I love is pretty sweet.  Not that I’m complaining, but I like to cut calories any time I can.

Problem:  When I make chex mix, it’s impossible to get just the right amount of the three different chex cereals for the recipe so I always have leftovers.  And I am not fond enough of them to finish them off for my breakfasts.

Aha!  I’ve mixed all the chex cereals in one box and then I’m mixing a half bowl of that mix with a half bowl of my favorite Special K, for my normal bowl of cereal in the morning!

I actually like this combo, so it’s no sacrifice.

Solution:  I’m getting rid of  unused cereal in the cupboard that is just taking up space.

Solution:  My favorite cereal is just a little less sweet this way and I like the crunch the other cereal adds.

Solution:  I’ve found a way to finish off any partial boxes of less popular cereals which end up taking space in the cupboard.

May all your problems today be little ones … and may they all have simple solutions.

Happy Thursday!

    We think alike, my friend. I’ve been mixing cereals for years. Not specifically to get rid of the last of one, but because I like the different textures and tastes.

    Yum! I like combining cereals, and that sounds like a really good combination.

    I’ve got a couple of boxes of cereal that I bought to “try,” just taking up space in the cupboard because I didn’t care for either of them. Maybe I should try mixing them to see if it makes them both taste better. 🙂

    Well, meet “retiredandlovingit.” That’s from an old WordPress account that I’ve never used. Anyway, in case you were wondering, it’s me.

    It just takes a little thought huh Sandra? 🙂 – Dave

    Hilary — If that’s true, we probably should both be concerned — but I’m not! 🙂 Mixing cereals — just another facet of life that was happening without me knowing it! I’m glad I’m finally “in the know”. It opens up all kinds of interesting possibilities.

    Beth — I really do like this combination, but now that I’m on to this trick, I’ll be trying other combos too. 🙂

    Linda — Yes, definitely give it a try. I KNOW TW will be glad to see you using up those bits and pieces of leftover cereal. 🙂

    Dave — Apparently more thought that I’ve ever given it! “Better late than never.” 🙂
