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.

If bored, feel free to follow me on Twitter @madcatdisease

My Planned Drugstore Shopping, Black Friday Edition UPDATED

Sales at all three stores start on Thanksgiving! Remember: Walgreens and Rite Aid are supplementing their ads (meaning Sunday's ad is still valid), while CVS is completely discarding its Sunday ad and replacing it with a new (lame) ad.

Walgreens:

*During my transactions on Thanksgiving, I received several $10/$35 purchase coupons that I can use starting tomorrow! So I'll definitely be making another trip.*

Blu Science Trim Blu, 60 ct $10.00
Buy 1, Receive $10.00 Register Reward, Limit 1 per transaction
Use 1 $2.00/1 BlueScience Chromadex Product from Answers at Walgreens Vitamins and Supplements Book
Pay $8.00, Receive $10.00 Register Reward
Final Price: $2.00 MONEYMAKER

*CAUTION: This coupon is insane. Instead of taking off $2.00, it adds $27.99! It's basically adding a whole new product to your order. UPC CONFUSION MADNESS! So make sure that's fixed when you use it. Also, try to get the cashier to take it off the price of the item instead of keying it in as manufacturer coupon, because you might need another filler if the latter occurs.*
