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, 4/14/13

We already used one of the litters, you guys. These cats are insatiable!
 
The Nivea deals just weren't working out today! The Rite Aid deal was overcharging everyone, and the CVS prices were just too high to make it worthwhile. Le sigh. Killed on the Venus Razor deal, though. That's not even including the rebate! The $10 Bayer moneymaker at Rite Aid was pretty sweet, too. Good thing I signed up for the diabetes email! Was also very happy with the $0.50 cat litter. That'll come in handy. These brats poop and pee a LOT, you guys.

Here's what I picked up today:

*I bought the Hefty bags cause I thought I'd qualify for a $1 Ibotta offer, but it turns out that's just for the Gripper variety. Ugh. Those are too tight for our garbage can. I'm also not sure why I didn't purchase the bags in a separate transaction so that I could have used some of the $3.50 and $1.00 Register Rewards I had accumulated. I'm gonna just blame stupidity for both errors. Though in my defense the filler options this week weren't great. Really don't like having to spend a quarter to use a dollar reward if I can avoid it.*
