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.

My planned shopping, week of 1/8

I'm a bit behind on my planning for this week. Ack. I'm also behind on showering, but that's another story.

ANYWHO, here's my planned shopping for the week:

NOTE: Keep in mind that when you spend $50 on Johnson & Johnson products from 1/8-3/8, there is a mail-in rebate for $46 back in coupons (the rebate information is under product coupons). So keep your receipts! (You should do that anyway.)
