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, 5/19/13

Stretching the meaning of "massive" since 2012.

I got a $10.00 Beauty Club reward from last week's deals at CVS! Crazee. I don't count these rewards in my calculations when I earn them, since they're typically earned cumulatively during several shopping trips (same with the P&G rebate cards, which can take a couple of months to earn). So when I spend these types of rewards, I deduct them from my net cost for that week instead. Math is hard, you guys. I also shopped on two separate Extra Care cards again, using a $5/$30 CVS coupon with each card.

Here's what I did:
