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, 5/5/13


I ended up picking up a couple of boxes of Align on sale at Rite Aid Saturday, so I was a bit short on +Up Rewards. So I'm splitting that shopping trip up into two days, and will go back tomorrow to use today's +Up Rewards. So I should finish the Bayer and Arm & Hammer deals then. Oh, and the Stayfree/OB deal, of course! In the meantime, here's what I've done so far:
