Sometimes Dreams Do Come True.....

My favorite pizza consists of thin crust topped with Italian sausage, mushrooms, and black olives.
You should keep this pertinent information handy. You never know when you might get the prompting to send a pizza to a hungry woman in Houston.
Anyway, I've never once partaken of a Scratch-And-Dent styled pizza, but the instant that my Infidel eyes locked onto the magical Manager's Special sticker slapped on the side of the crumpled box, I knew it was fate that had led me to that darkened corner of the Kroger Deli after closing hours.
You see, in my possession was a coupon for $2.00 off on this exact brand of pizza.
So, the original price was $8.99. It was marked down to $5.20 because of the squished pizza packaging. And then I furthered the savings with a $2.00 coupon!
We all ate lunch today for $3.20.
Yesssssss!!!!!!
Not even a neighborhood Pizza Pimp can beat that kind of bargain pricing.
The midnight cashier looked concerned as I cradled the pizza to my chest and lovingly cooed about how happy I was that we'd finally found each other at just the right moment.....the moment that made all my cheap eats dreams come true.
The early bird gets the worm. However, the late-night Infidel scores the deeply discounted pizza!

"Cooed"!
Thinking of you cooing at a pizza is a beautiful thing.

I love it when there's a major score.

What beats a cheap, easy, fast, fuss-free meal?

That most all kids will eat, needs to be added on to that!

Oh how I love to find deals like that!
We have mostly boys, and you can't believe how much they eat.

Some things are just meant to be.

Did you give it a back rub before savagely devouring it? ;)

Nancy Face said...

More importantly (is that a word?)...where's MY slice? Hmmm?

Nancy Face said...

NOTHING can beat a super discount paired with a coupon to make one's wildest grocery dreams come true! :)

Nancy Face said...

SCORE!!!

Pepperoni AND six cheeses for $3.20?! That is just awesome!

Congrats on your great find, but I see an important issue here...

You cooed at a pizza, but never at me? Fine, I see how it is. I'll never yell "Brandy, You're a Fine Girl" the same way again.

I thought of you last night, waiting for the Safeway restroom and wondering if the guy ahead of me was writing a novel in there... I saw four teak deck chairs for $30 at the clearance rack - right next to the prune pie filling.

(Who makes prune pie?)

That's my favorite kind of pizza too! We could be twinsies!

$3.20 pizza? Impressive, my lady!

This post makes me hungry. Where is my super fabulous, cheap, 6 cheese pizza?

There is just something about a sweet deal that makes the food taste all the better.

Suburban Hippie said...

So was it tasty? Or does that matter?

Like manna from heaven!

Who knew manna was replaced by pizza these days?

Not me.

Wahoo for cheap AND tasty eats!
