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.

How I turned the Kimberly Clark Ibotta Deal into a moneymaker!

Can you spot the cat in this pic?

I completed the Kimberly Clark Ibotta deal! Talk about complicated! I purchased 10 items in just the right combinations to earn all five bonuses, including the oh-so-coveted $20 bonus! I managed to turn the deal into a moneymaker, despite the fact that almost none of the items were on sale, using my 20% Gold Discount at Rite Aid and a 20% CVS coupon that came in this Sunday's paper.
