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 CVS and Rite Aid moneymaker trip!
UPDATE: The $0.75/2 Milky Way coupon is now available on Coupons.com!
The Krazy Coupon Lady has been posting new Rite Aid deal discoveries like crazy this week! And yesterday I reported that the CVS Magic Coupon Machine is spitting out the $1/2 Mars candy coupon daily (at least for now), and that there was (at that time) also a $0.75/2 Internet printable coupon that would make buying Milky Ways a moneymaker! Unfortunately, that coupon is now gone. You gotta print these things quickly, people! But hopefully the CVS coupon will continue to print, and we will continue to grow fatter and more spoiled. Yay first world problems!
