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, 6/16/13



Walgreens is revisiting its former glory this week with tons of freebies and moneymakers! Hopefully you got the $3/1 Fiber Smart and $1/1 Purex coupons that were available like a week ago. I got the former, not the latter. Le sigh. The other drugstores are not having much of a week (though the CVS Almay deal was pretty sweet, it is now over as the coupon expired Sunday). I received a $4/$20 coupon on one CVS card that I shop on and a $6/$30 on another, so that was fun. I've also included my grocery store deals again, for whatever good that'll do you. The deals I take advantage of the most, especially at Safeway, are J4U (just for you - get it) deals that tend to vary a bit from person to person.

Here's what I did:
