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, 9/22/13


Couldn't find any of the Colgate 360 Optic White toothbrushes. Hmph. There are mixed reports of whether the two coupons are working together anyway. Though judging from the empty shelves I'm gonna guess it's working pretty well. Or there's a bunch of toothbrushes behind the CVS counter thrown by angry couponers. Who the hell knows.

No % off coupon from CVS this week. And I used up my last $10/$50 coupon today. Lean times ahead? Le sigh. At least Rite Aid is back to having some decent deals. Now if only Walgreens will get off its ass...
