I think DH has gotten 1/2 cheese 1/2 pepperoni there before, you just have to wait for it.
Also print coupons off their website.
No leftovers. I have two teen boys & one girl plus their dad. DS13 is 6' tall and 126 pounds. DD12 is sometimes eating everything. Sometimes not. Ds11 is another bottomless pit. 5'2 & 90 pounds & growing every day. 2 pizzas gets everybody 4 slices. (I eat wings.) Less than that, the boys are in the pantry an hour later looking for stuff to eat! Maybe, I could cut it down to one pepperoni pizza & make batches of wings? Hungry boys can reheat some wings, sauce em up & have a ball?

Gotta love the unexpected! I went to the dentist this past Wednesday and felt like I was in the principals office. I know I have cavities and hate going there! So I did the $130 filling for the tooth that I broke that I found out while he was in there was severely decayed. He said more than likely I need a root canal And the way it feels I'm sure it does! Now I chipped another filling! Blah .....

Tuesday is "pizza night" for us because of Scout meeting. We usually spend $25-30 for that. Does anyone have any ideas for that? I need something quick & probably still pizza. I can't get frozen pizza for much less than what I already spend.
Costco

They sell precooked pizza, cash only, at the snack bar. The pizza is large, with 12 slices. It costs $9.99 and reheats very will. They sell cheese, pepperoni, veggie or combo.

The pizza freezes and reheats very well.

If you have a Costco membership, right now they have their premade pepperoni pizza for sale. It is $6.99. All you have to do is heat the oven.

Thanks for the suggestion, but I live in the land of Sam's only.

Do you live near an Aldi? Their "take & bake" pizzas, although not fresh, are YUMMY & only $5.99-$7.99 depending on the type. They are huge, 16" I think?

Nope, no Aldi either. I think my best option is probably eliminating the pricier options at little caesars & sticking to the cheese & pepperoni cheapos.

Dansamy, Little Caesars also offers *any* large one topping pizza for $5. It doesn't have to be cheese or pepperoni. They just don't advertise it, but call ahead and it's ready in 10 min. I never knew that, but one opened right by my house, and we have pizza every Friday night. (it's my one "splurge"...lol)

Yep. That's what I mean. Normally, we get a 3 meat, a one topping & an order of wings. That's usually $22 with taxes. I'm just going to put my foot down & just get 2 one toppings & make my own wings.

Jeez.... I had one payment left on my loan and had to go to the bank to straighten it out. (The payments were auto-debited but they never took this one). When I logged on to my account, there was a warning that since the payment was late, I could incur late fees. GRRRR!!! I will be calling tomorrow morning to make sure they aren't taking any late fees!!!
But after that, hooray!!!

How many people are you feeding with pizza? Do you have a Little Caesars? I personally don't eat it but the $5 hot and ready is good for the kids when we need a quick, cheap meal. I also make my own, I have a bread machine do the dough and can make them ahead of time, just stick in the fridge until it's time to bake. We also sometimes do pita pizzas. With salad or other fruits/veggies, usually each of us will eat two. None of these options run me $25 or even close.

Good job on the last payment!!!

I sat and drew out two big "Debt Thermometer" charts tonight - one of my total debt and one for the loan I'm currently working on. I think it'll really inspire me if I can look at it and be itching to do something to make that red "Paid off" amount go up faster!

Well, just called the dentist to get an idea on the cost of a root canal. $1074 Ouch!! And I have no dental insurance. Why do they have to be so expensive

Glad I decided not to go on vacation!

When I got mine last year, I tried to save money by going to a cheap place for $900, but they messed it up so badly I had to go to a specialist to get it redone, to the tune of $3000 I didn't nave insurance either, I was so mad. Do you know if that includes the crown that usually goes with it? Or are you managing to avoid the crown?

I had to have one last year and wish that had been all I had to pay. My cost was $1735 for the root canal and crown and that was after my insurance paid. I wish I had never had it done, my mouth has been sore ever since and my DH lost his job soon after and I haven't been able to pay back much on the care credit account I had to open to have it done. We were working on rebuilding credit and reducing debt before this happened and it has really hurt. I feel your pain.
