Critter-free Food

And I'm not just saying that to encourage vegetarianism.

Twice in the past four or five months, I've found live, creepy crawlies in my foodstuff. Cereal and couscous. (Aren't you glad I didn't post pictures). And although the manufacturers were kind enough to apologize and send me coupons for replacement items - how can I ever eat anything out of a cardboard box again?

Is it where I'm shopping? Is my attempt to spend as little as possible on groceries making me more succeptible to infestations? (And I keep my kitchen clean, by the way). How can a girl get a decent meal for a decent price without having to pick weevils out of her dinner?
