*I can make a personal cheese pizza for $1.20 (60¢ for half serving). I get flour for 99¢ for a 5-lb. bag a Kroger twice a year. I found yeast packets on sale, 3/99¢. I get cheese for 99¢ for 8 oz., less a 42¢ coupon. Add some olive oil and sauce. The cheapest frozen pizza I’m finding (1/21) is Publix BOGO on Tombstone (final price of $2.19).

I once got a crazy deal on Tombstone pizza you will probably not see again, but deals happen on a regular basis, so you’ll probably get another deal like this on something else in your area. That’s how Smart Shopping works. Keep your eyes open and you’ll keep finding these rare deals without having to jump through hoops.

Tombstone pizzas were as much as $6 each at Publix a few years ago, but Publix has regular BOGO sales. Occasionally, Tombstone runs coupons in the newspaper, reducing the price even more. Today, they are $2.19 after BOGO, or $1.10 for a half a pizza.

Kroger sells Tombstone for about $4. Kroger had a special, 2/$4. They also had a digital coupon, buy 2 Tombstone pizzas, get $2 off, so I got 2 pizzas for $2, or $1 each! If I had found a manufacturer’s coupon, I might have got the pizzas for free, but that’s taking advantage of a loophole in the system and is obnoxious.

Recently, I got two of Kroger’s fresh deli-made pizzas for $2.50 each (on manager’s special).

Because they know I like Tombstone, Kroger occasionally sends me a coupon for a free pizza to get me into the store.

Another nice, but repeating deal, is Publix soda. They regularly put their 99¢, 2-liter bottles of Publix soda on BOGO, so it’s 50¢ a bottle, giving me a drink for 9¢. Sometimes, they offer a $1 off soda if you buy three bottles, lowering the cost of a 2-liter bottle of soda to 17¢!

I think they might have figured out that brain fart, because I haven’t seen that deal for a while.
