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.

Look in your coupons for a $4.00/$20.00 Nature Made CVS coupon that previously printed from the Magic Coupon Machine. The one I have isn't expired yet!

*Assuming no use of Beauty Club, Green Bag Tag or forced print Extra Bucks in the transaction, all of which lower the value of a % off coupon.


Walgreens:

*There's another $25 Prescription Transfer coupon in this week's ad if you forgot to grab some last week (like I did)*

*This week's ad is suggesting that in order to get ANY of the sale prices, you have to scan your Balance Rewards Card. Sigh. This wasn't the case last week. I know I'm going to annoy the hell out of my cashier by making them enter my phone number with each transaction! Blame Walgreens corporate, child.*
