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.

My Planned Drugstore Shopping, Week of 10/7

Head's up: Sales suck at Walgreens and CVS this week. Definitely not going to Walgreens; not sure yet about CVS (UPDATE: I'm just going for the cheap Hershey's). I still included the few available decent deals at those stores below:

Staples:

Been awhile since Staples offered Rewards deals! Remember: You get your rewards the following month, around the 15th. And you cannot use any rewards to pay for purchases that produce rewards; if you do, you don't get the new rewards. I'm not sure whether the same is true with the rebate purchases.
