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, 1/13/12



I decided not to use my 20% flu shot coupon (which is actually my husband's coupon - I don't get the flu shot cause that's how the aliens track you *nods*) this week as it doesn't expire until the end of March, and I decided not to do the cash card deal this week since I didn't have any Extra Bucks that were expiring. So all in all an uneventful trip to CVS this week!
