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, 4/28/13 (Goodbye Green Bag Tag...)



RIP Green Bag Tag. CVS has decided to discontinue the program. So be sure to scan your Green Bag Tag ASAP, because at least for now a $2.00 final Extra Bucks reward will print on your receipt, stating that the program has ended. Not sure how much longer the reward will print out for people, so hurry!
