Super Bowl Sunday: Resist the Urge to be a Fat & Poor Slob (Well, poor....I'm getting my fat on)

I'll be the first to admit - I love, LOVE, using any excuse to eat crappy and be happy.  For instance, today.  It's Super Bowl Sunday.  "Let's eat junk food!" is my first thought.  I don't even watch or like football on a regular basis.  I make my kids watch these "big" games only because they are boys and I think you're suppose to do stuff like that for boys.

2 weeks ago we ended up ordering pizza for the playoff game - which was like $25.  But I'm more "minimalistic" and pure now so nope.  Not happening today.  I mean, we're still going to eat junk food - just not take out.  I did score some DiGiorno pizza sticks or something for $3 at Stop & Shop this past week which I will heat up.  My husband went to the store for tortilla chips and cheese - which will probably be about $6.  So yeah, we're still "splurging" and getting our fat on - but instead of ordering out and dropping $25, we dropped only $9 by pre-planning.

Not exactly a "Wow!  You're so great!" concept - but hey, $16 is $16 and when you have to be pinching pennies, every little bit helps.  Did you do anything to cut costs for your fat-infested football fest tonight?
