good deals, good pizza

Last night we decided on Pizza Hut Pizza for dinner. Preston treated with his money earned by taking care of our next door neighbor's cats for several days. We chose two large stuffed crust pepperoni pizzas. I had an old coupon for a free large when you buy a large. Well, Pizza hut has a buy a large get a second for $10.00. and they took the first pizza which should have been like $14.00 off for the free pizza. The cashier just said that is what the computer did...good for us. Preston actually got some cash back. And the Pizza Hut stuffed crust pizza is SO yummy. Hansen will never eat the crust, unless it is stuffed with cheese!

While the Pizza was cooking, I walked over to Safeway and got even more great deals. Cat Litter was on sale, but the big deal was a Coke/Hallmark deal where you buy a few hallmark cards and there is a coupon for a free case of pop. Then the kicker is that if you buy two cases of pop, you get three free. And the case you get for free with the coupon for the cards counts as the one bought for the other free pop. I don't know why these stores like to give stuff away every once in awhile, but when they do, who is to argue? I do argue sometimes when our stock pile gets on the large side, but pop has a very long shelf life. We gave a ton of food to the school's food drive as well as the church's food drive. When Maren finds these great deals, then forwards the extra goods to food banks and such, it sounds like a win/win to me.

Today is Preston's music assembly where he is playing the clarinet. Should be fun.

See you tomorrow.
