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.

Moneymaker pore strips and nail polish at CVS, also deals at Rite Aid and Harris Teeter!
UPDATE: Apparently they fixed the strips fuck-up Thursday. Bummer.
Run to CVS before they fix this fuck-up! The Biore Pore Strips 2-packs are producing the $5.00 Jergens Extra Buck reward! Oops! This could be fixed any minute, so hurry if you want to take advantage. Also, Maybelline nail polish is on sale for BOGO 50% this week; if you've been scanning your card at the Magic Coupon Machine multiple times this week, you can combine a couple of CVS coupons with manufacturer coupons to get some almost-free nail polish. As for me, I actually found some at 50% clearance price, meaning I made money buying them! I also got some cheap sponges at Rite and coffee creamer and cereal at Harris Teeter today. Not too shabby.
