Freschetta Pizza Coupon & Review

by Beth Montgomery on April 30, 2010

in Coupons & Rebates

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Freschetta. All opinions are 100% mine.

My kids love pizza. In fact, when my youngest daughter turned two and we asked her what she wanted for her birthday, she said, “Pizza.”   Okay, well, she really said, “A llama, a goat, a kitty-cat, and a pizza,”, but pizza was the only part of that request that we seriously considered.

Going out for   pizza can get expensive for a family of four (and a half), since it’s the one food my kids actually inhale!   In the end, we never spend under $20 for the standard stuff, so don’t get me started on the gourmet pizzas.

And then I saw this…

The thought of   spinach on a pizza always seems wrong to me, until my kids (yes, my kids) convinced me to try it. Now it’s our all-time favorite.   When I got my coupon from Freschetta, I was excited about free pizza.   But, when I saw the Roasted Garlic & Spinach Freschetta FlatBread pizza, I got more exited about actually trying the pizza.

My daughters and I had a “Pizza Picnic” on our patio tonight and put it to the test. I got thumbs up from all of us.   Plus it was only $5.99 at our local Meijer, which is much more affordable than restaurant pizza, but just as good.

The only thing that would have made it better would have been some chicken, which we talked about adding next time!

You can try it too with this $1/1 Freschetta Pizza printable coupon or wait until tomorrow!   I’m going to share a couple of my FREE pizza coupons in a giveaway.   You’ll have to come back to find out how to enter to win.

Come back tomorrow to enter to win a FREE Freschetta pizza coupon!

This is Part 30 of the 30-day Savings Soiree e-course by In Good Cents. View the most recent course in this series or head to the Saving Soiree e-course main menu. Want to make sure you don’t miss a new course?   Subscribe to In Good Cents via RSS or e-mail!

We’ve made it through 30-Days of tips and tricks to help you save!   Hopefully, you feel a bit more empowered to start cutting your own household budget.   But there is so much more to saving money than clipping coupons and watching ads.   It helps, but it’s just a start.

I have tons of ideas, and I will admit, thought I should, I don’t use them all myself.   I’m trying though!

- – Make Your Own – -

Many don’t realize, often making your own at home can save you tons!   When you’re baking things like bread, you can make so much with a package of flour, that in the end, the cost of ingredients is minimal.   Plus, you can afford to make much healthier versions and try gourmet breads.

Here’s what you can make at home to cut your budget.

  • Snacks, Meals, and Baked Goods
  • Soaps & Washes
  • Household Cleaners
  • Spices & Herbs
  • Flavored Oils & Sauces

- – Borrow & Share – -

Somethings, like books, you don’t need to buy, since you can get them at the library for FREE!   In fact, many people don’t realize how much you can borrow from and enjoy at the library, depending on your local branch.

  • Books for All Ages
  • Books on Tape/CD
  • Movies
  • Music CDs
  • Games & Toys
  • Story Times
  • Classes & Programs

- – Recycle & Reuse – -

Think about things in your home that you throw out and before they hit the trash, how could you use them to save you   money?

  • Use grocery bags for trash bags in cars and small trash cans.
  • Refill plastic water bottles and juice bottles.
  • Use plastic containers for cottage cheese, sour cream, and other items as storage containers.
  • Rinse out plastic storage bags to get more uses out of them.
  • Look into online banking to save on stamps and envelopes.
  • Flip over used paper, flyers, and junk mail to print coupons, draft documents, or let the kids use as coloring sheets.
  • Cut up scrap paper for note pads.
  • Wrap presents in newspaper or kids coloring pages.
  • Use shoe boxes or cardboard boxes to organize closets and other spaces.
  • Fill up half-empty bottles of shampoo and bath wash with a little water to get more uses out of each bottle.

- – Replace – -

And, of course, there are the things that you just don’t need, even though we tend to think we do.   Here’s some things you could replace in your home with reusable version and simply do without.

  • Bottled Water
  • Plastic & Paper Grocery Bags
  • Coffee Filters
  • Paper Towels
  • Paper Napkins
  • Plastic Utensils
  • Paper Plates & Bowls
  • Disposable Diapers
  • One-Use Sponges, Wipes, and Toilet Brushes
  • One-Use Cameras
  • 35MM Cameras

Of course, these are just a few.   How do you save money at home?
