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.

*This Catalina printed out before the transaction was complete (I was at a self checkout), just so you know. I initially had thought that it was just an advertisement as it was printing out prior to payment and then when nothing printed after payment I got pissy. Then I realized the purported advertisement was actually the catalina! Then I took it down to Harris Teeter and used it there since they accept Safeway coupons. BAM.*
