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, 8/4/13



I'm getting the $10/$50 CVS coupons at the end of my receipts again! YAY! This always means killer moneymakers! Other than that there's not much going on at CVS this week. My 30% coupon has never been treated so pitifully. Fortunately the deals at the other stores I went to made up for that a bit.

Here's what I did:
