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.

Cheap Glade Twin refills and Nexxus Haircare at Rite Aid and Target!
Today I did a new deal involving cheap Nexus hair care and found some more free and moneymaker monitors! The Nano coupon overage pretty much paid for the fancyish shampoo and conditioner! I heart overage.
Bought 2 Accu-Chek Nano Meter Kits $19.99 each, regular price
Used 2 $10.00/1 Accu-Chek Nano from RP 7/29
And used 2 $5.00/1 Adperk coupons (RiteAid.com)
Final Price: $10.02 MONEYMAKER (applied to rest of transactions)
Bought 1 OneTouch Verio IQ Meter $69.99, regular price

What I actually paid: $2.55 - $2.00 previous +Up Rewards + $1.29 sales tax = $1.84 paid out of pocket. Walked away with $10.00 +Up Reward.
So yesterday I went to Target and killed on air fresheners. But today I learned that there were several coupons I could have used but didn't have on me due to poor planning. So I kicked a cat. Not really. But I did decide to collect those coupons and go back to Target to do another deal. After all, we need more oil twin refills. It's the damn sprays we have too much of.
So here's what I did today:
Bought 6 Glade Plugins Scented Oil Twin Refill Seasonal Packs $4.55 each, regularly $5.39 each
Used 6 $1.00/1 Internet printable coupons (Coupons.com)
And used 3 BOGO Glade Plugins Scented Oil Twin Refill Packs, Target Coupons (Target.com)
And used 3 $1.00/1 Glade Air Care Item, Target Coupons (Target.com)
Final Price: $4.65 ($0.78 each) for 6
$32.34 Shelf price
- 22.65 Coupons
- 5.37 Discounts (including Red Card discount and own bag discount)
=$4.32 86.6% savings off shelf price
What I actually paid: $4.65 + $0.68 sales tax = $5.33 - $0.33 Red Card and own bag discounts = $5.00 - $5.00 Target gift card received yesterday = $0 paid out of pocket.
