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, 1/6/13

One of my Stayfrees is missing. WHICH ONE OF YOU STOLE MY STAYFREES?!!! I'LL DESTROY YOU!
Nevermind, it's probably in the car. Carry on.
