Welcome to an irreverent, not-at-all comprehensive blog about my couponing exploits in Montgomery County, Maryland, with some annoying cats sprinkled about. Try not to step on them; they get ever so cross. Also there may be some law stuff here and there, but not too much, because most law stuff is boring.

Harris Teeter Super Double Coupon Shopping, Day 1

=12.61 (85.4% savings)
+  1.37 Sales tax
=13.98 Paid out of pocket

Sadly I was not able to get the fiance yet another Pulsar toothbrush to add to his collection, as the E-Vic coupon did not apply itself to the transaction. But at least the cats are happy. Free Wellness AND free treats?! They don't deserve such a windfall! They do NOTHING to contribute to society.
I'll be trying yet more exciting combinations tomorrow! (Well, now today). CURSE YOU, 20-COUPON LIMIT!!!
