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.

Finishing deals at CVS
So on Sunday, I began two deals at CVS - Garnier HerbaShine and Beneful Baked Delights - but couldn't finish them because I didn't have all the coupons I needed.
