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, 2/3/13



Couldn't find any of the sleep medication on sale at CVS this week. But it did remind me that I had a raincheck for another sleep medication that was on sale for free like a month ago, so I picked that up. Maybe in a month CVS will finally have this week's sale item in stock! Got my raincheck ready when it is.

Be on the lookout at Walgreens for the blue/green boxes of Sheetz - they're on clearance at most stores, ringing up at various prices (less than $3.00 at some stores), and they're still producing a $4.00 Register Reward. Score!

Sorry this is late; we're looking for a house to move into at the end of the month. So I had to combine house hunting with my couponing yesterday. STRESSFUL. Plus I had to go to court this morning for a parking ticket (I won, btw. You won't be getting that $60, Montgomery County!).

ANYWHO, here's what I did yesterday:
