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, 6/23/13



I lucked out at Rite Aid with the John Frieda deal. Yay peelie coupons! The Marc Anthony deal was a bit stubborn, as the Adperks are beeping on the Strictly Curls items, even though they're explicitly included. Le sigh. I shopped on two cards again at CVS to take advantage of the awesome baby deals, all of which will go right into the donation bin. Also, free Dermasilk and moneymaker Venus!

Here's what I did:
