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 RIte Aid and Walgreens for free gum, cheap Cottonelle wipes!


The Cottonelle wipes deal at Walgreens is better than than I thought!

I also stopped at Rite Aid, where I did a couple of old deals as well as a new one with Stride gum.
