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.

Another trip to Walgreens, plus a CVS moneymaker!


I went to another Walgreens today in hope of finally finding some of that free aspirin and rolling me some more $7 rewards. That didn't happen. This store was out of like EVERYTHING. I did manage to find one more special package of the Colgate Total Advanced with the coupons inside of it. And I used 5 of the coupons I got Sunday to take advantage of some new deals, including the Colgate Sensitive Pro Relief and the Irish Spring Body Wash. Also, with two new $1/1 toothbrush CVS coupons having printed on the hubby's account, I decided to take two of the special package coupons and turn that deal into a $2 moneymaker!
