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.

Great deals at Staples, Rite Aid and Harris Teeter this week!

"Can't help but notice none of this crap is for me..."
The Sparkle Towels from Staples is probably the best paper towel deal I've ever seen. 8 rolls for a buck! Of course, it's not going to be easy to obtain. Greg That Dude explains how to find which Staples has these in stock. Also, check your Rite Aid receipt coupons - I found a high value John Frieda coupon and Prevacid coupon in mine expiring soon that made for freebies/moneymakers. Also, The Krazy Coupon Lady shows us a way we can turn the Prevacid purchase into a free $5 Starbucks gift card! Hopefully it works - I'm still waiting for my confirmation email stating that I'm going to get mine. *Fingers crossed*
