It's probably cheaper to buy waffles and bacon than eat your daily Special K. Cookie packaging has done it too-with those partitioned boxes they sit in, you only get about 2 dozen cookies for the old price of 3x that amount. My grocery bill is probably 2x what it was 2 years ago, and I buy a lot less.
That's a big bowl of cereal. I get the "Large Size" Fibre 1 for about $6.50 and it last two weeks, every morning.
