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 Massive Sunday Haul, 4/29/12



I didn't head out to shop Sunday until like 6pm. I KNOW! I had family stuff to do. Priorities, am I right? ANYWHO, because of time restraints I didn't make it to far-out (distance wise, not groovy wise) Walgreens yet.

I did make it to Rite Aid and CVS; however, when I got home I realized that Rite Aid screwed me (and apparently everyone else) on the expiration dates on this week's +Up Rewards! They expire on Saturday?! WTF?! I'm assuming it's a glitch and emailed customer service. Now I'm cranky. Grrr.
