A cereal offender: Cheeky dad buys 18 BOXES of his favourite breakfast food after being asked by his wife to ‘buy a few extra’ whenever there’s a sale
Those who ask their loved ones to pick up ‘just a few’ groceries at the supermarket expect just that.
But Kristin Jordan’s husband took this request just a little too far after he was asked to pick up a ‘few extra’ items at Woolworths if there was a sale.
The doting husband was so excited about seeing his beloved breakfast cereal on sale that he purchased 18 boxes in one go.
Kristin Jordan’s husband ticked all the right boxes earlier this week when he not only returned with the correct cereal but has also paid attention to the sale Woolworths was having
‘I have always been a tighta**. When I met my husband, words like budget and savings were foreign to him,’ she wrote on Facebook.
‘Over the years I have taught him little tricks such as buying a few extra when things like our deodorant or washing powder are half price.
‘He was pretty proud of himself today coming home with this haul when he found his favourite cereal for half price. Anyone have a spare bunker for us?’
Jokingly calling him a ‘cereal offender’ the couple’s son posed next to the 18 boxes of Jordan’s Crispy Oat Clusters which have a November used by date

‘There have been a few times in our marriage where we have had to really look at ways to save money. I went on maternity leave twice, so we went down to one income during that time and I was working at Aussie Farmers Direct up until March when they suddenly closed down and we weren’t paid redundancies,’ Kristin told FEMAIL.
‘We have three things that we really value that we pour our money into. These are our house; we wanted to live in an area fairly close to the city, saving for our kids educations and family holidays.
‘It may seem strange that we put family holidays in there but to us they are very important. So we try and save money elsewhere,’ Kristin admitted

The family make the majority of their meals at home and stock up on non perishables like toilet paper when the prices are low.
Commenters loved the cheeky photo and only worried that they may not be able to eat them all by the best before date.
