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, 10/6/13





GOOD NEWS, EVERYONE! The CVS % coupons from the circulars are now working on items that produce Extra Bucks! YAAAAAAAY! Almost makes up for BOGO coupons no longer ringing up at full value. ALMOST. 

Anywho, here's what I did today:

UPDATE: We stopped at a CVS after dinner tonight and I found the toothbrush heads! The cashier gave me some static about the coupon picture not matching the item (which she's lucky I didn't knock her out over - SO annoying when cashiers don't know how to read coupons), but when she scanned the coupons, they went through just fine.

Bought 2 Oral-B Complete Action Toothbrush Refills 2 ct $5.99 each, regularly $9.99 each
