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.

Harris Teeter Super Double Coupons, Trip 1



As I have been preparing this my door bell has been ringing nonstop. Here's your damn diabeetus, kids! Hopefully I didn't screw anything up.

So it turned out I didn't have to go to work today. I'm down a day's pay, but on a plus note I had time to plan and execute a Harris Teeter Super Doubles trip! Yaaaaaay! That's worth the $200 in lost income! Sigh.

I didn't get a chance to pick up any Lindt chocolate today (stupid 20 coupon a day limit), but a bunch of coupons have reset over at Coupons.com, including that one, so go get yourself some fresh prints!

Also, as you'll see below there was an error to my advantage with the Axe ZVR coupons. There were two on my account and both came off when I purchased one Axe deodorant. This has happened to me several times at Harris Teeter. I'm not condoning the exploitation of this error; I'm just stating that it happened and I received credit for it. Not my fault. If you don't want it to happen to you, take one of the coupons off your account. Problem solved.

Anywho, here's what I did today:

Bought 2 Cover Girl Eye Enhancers $3.03 each, regularly $3.79 each'
