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 2
Ahhhhh. Another day, another 20 coupons doubled.
This time I went to the Columbia, MD Harris Teeter. The U.S. Census Bureau ranked Howard county as the 5th wealthiest county in the country in 2011. So of course just about all the coupon freebies were wiped out! Stupid frugal rich people. But this was what I was able to wrangle:

This is non-clumping litter; we don't use this for the cats, but it's supposed to help make traction for your tires in winter weather. That is, if you ever actually remember to put it in your car...

Damn expensive Fancy Feast. That does it; I'm switching the brats to Meow Mix. The McDonalds of cat food.
