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, 8/19/13

You'll get your picture when I damn well want to take it. (Sorry, sleepy and cranky) 

Did anyone else's Rite Aid rewards not print on Sunday? WTF?! Apparently it was a glitch in the Matrix that only affected a few people. It appears to be fixed now. I had to take my purchases back to the store and return/rebuy them Monday! SO annoying.

Sorry this is late. Busy and sleepy. I'M SO EXCITED! That's called a callback, you guys.

Know what the worst part of back to school shopping is? The kids. HA! I'm so funny. But seriously. Little kids running all over the place, hiding my free pens. GIMME BACK MY FREE PENS, KIDS!
