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 Massive Sunday Haul, 11/18/12



CVS was INSANE! I had to go to 5 to get all the stuff. Still couldn't find the Command Strips, though. Rite Aid of course paled in comparison. The Safeway moneymaker was a nice surprise; I spent all last week getting rainchecks for the Rite Aid Dove Men body wash sale and then this pops up and blows that one out of the water. Yay moneymakers!


Here's what I did today:

Safeway:
