Time to stock up on snacks

Back-to-school will be here before you know it, and that means we’re just weeks—possibly days!—away from children standing in front of the pantry and moaning, “There’s nothing to eeeeeeeeat!”

Feel the love.

Amazon’s offering an awesome deal, though; it’s a true stock-and-save event. Right now there’s a slew of eligible foods where buying 2 saves you 20%, buying 3 saves you 30%, or buying 5 gets you a whopping 40% off! Just use coupon code BCKSCLO9 to reap the savings at checkout. And you can mix and match, so there’s no need to buy five of the same item (unless you want to, of course).

It claims the code cannot be combined with Subscribe and Save, but I haven’t checked it. If you were buying 5 of the same thing, it might be worth testing that. But even if it’s true, 40% off on something like Horizon Organic Milk Boxes brings the price down to $.66/carton. I’m just saying.

I will now go buy more than I think I should, and be amazed when it’s all gone by the first week of school.


  1. Just stocked up on organic fruit snacks to send in my 3 year old’s lunch when he goes back to preschool.

    Thanks Mir!

  2. Woo-Hoo! Horizon Chocolate Milk in time for school. You Rock. My DD takes her lunch every day.

  3. I love how Gevalia Coffee is in the top line … nothing like sending my second grader to school all jacked up on Hazelnut.

  4. Just remember to be aware of your location to have the milk delivered. I know last time a great deal was offered it was summer as well, and the milk was left sitting for a few hours in 90 degree temps….
