Walgreens: $25 Prescription coupon

If you did not get a Walgreen's ad this week make sure you do so! They have an attached coupon for a $25 Walgreens gift card when you transfer a prescription!

Pizza: Price Breakdown and Recipe

My husband and I love pizza and one of our favorite Friday night traditions before our 1st was born was to order pizza and watch a movie. Well when we did have our 1st ordering pizza was no longer an option so I learned how to make it. We still carry on our Friday night pizza movie tradition and it is much more cost effective this way! Here is the recipe I use and price break down:

Pepperoni Pizza: Serves 4
  • I use this crust recipe here. I figure this maybe costs around .50-.75 to make depending on what kind of deal you get on yeast.
  • 1/3 of jar of pizza sauce. (Kroger brand sauce =1.19 so 1/2 of jar=.40
  • 1/2 pack of Pepperoni (I use Aldi brand=1.99 so 1/2 pack=.98)
  • 2 cups of mozzarella or pizza cheese (I usually pay around 1.70 or less for a 2 cup bag of cheese) This week I got a steal on Kraft cheese and so my cheese only cost me .49!!!
Make your crust and throw on your toppings and bake according to the crust recipe directions and you have an 8-10 slice pizza for less than $4.00! Since I only paid .49 for my cheese this week our pizza will only cost me $2.50!

You can also use different toppings, we just happen to LOVE pepperoni pizza!

Hy-Vee: Starkist Tuna Creations deal

If you are a member of Vocal Point you probably just received coupons in the mail for Starkist. You should have gotten 1 BIGI coupon and 4 1/1 coupons. The Starkist Tuna Creations pouches have been reported to be priced at 1.57 at Hy-Vee. Here is a great deal to do:
  • Buy 2 Tuna creation pouches=3.14
  • Use BIGI coupon=-1.57
  • Use 1/1 coupon
Total=.57 for 2 or .29/1!!!

Pretty good deal if you like Tuna! Make sure you check the other deals for Hy-Vee ending today here!
