I’m usually not one to be too affected by humidity, but … whew!  I feel like the humidity is just draining the energy out of me.  No baking today — too hot.  I microwaved Butterball Turkey Bacon (it was on sale) and we had BLT sandwiches.  Yummy.

Tombstone … as in the Pizza.


It’s on sale this week at Bi-Lo Buy One Get One Free.  A pretty good deal —  $5.42 for 2, so $2.71 each.  And I had two $1 off 2 coupons, so that made the pizzas $2.21 each.  I like to shop in Georgia — less tax and I do not like the local Bi-Lo here.  So, Georgia tax is 3% on food, so that means that I paid $2.29 per pizza.  We were getting Little Caesars Pizza for awhile — it was good and Hot and Ready, but that was $5.35 per pizza ($5 plus 7% tax).  Yes, Little Caesars Pizza is bigger and I don’t have to cook anything, but I could buy 2 Tombstone pizzas for less than one Little Caesars.  Walmart’s regular price (or as regular as Walmart prices are) is $3.33 per Tombstone pizza.  We’re trying to save a little money, so unless we win a years supply of Little Caesar’s Pizza, we probably won’t be back for while.  I like Little Caesars Pizza, but it’s just not in the budget now.

Walmart Ice Cream Woes

June 1, 2009

Saturday, Walmart advertised a Free Ice Cream Day.  Their website said:

1.57 fl oz Dibs Snack Bag,
2.4 fl oz Blue Bunny Aspen Frozen Yogurt Granola Bar, and
4 oz Ben & Jerry’s Flipped Out Cup

We went to our local Walmart and were disappointed.  The sample ladies did Not give big samples (I was expecting a Whole dessert.)  You could choose ONE sample bite.  They had opened the Dibbs bags and you only got 2 little dots, the Aspen Granola bar was cut up into 4 or 5 pieces (so you got one bite), and the Flipped Out Cup was cut into 4 pieces.  So I chose the fourth of the Flipped Out Cup.  It was okay, but I was hoping for a whole one.
Also, in our Walmart ad, it showed Popsicles on sale for $1 for a box of 10.  I couldn’t find them anywhere.  A disappointing Walmart visit for us today.  Hopefully everyone else had a better time.
