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.

    1. Thanks! Be sure to check back because as usual I make a few changes as things go awry - for instance, here in the Montgomery Co MD area we don't have the St. Joseph's Aspiring or Di-Gel coupons (DOH!), BUT I've posted a new Hallmark coupon that will make that deal a moneymaker. Also I'll post my shopping trip today later tonight.
