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, 11/10/13

I did buy 2 of the Orajel but my husband needed one because
he had a boo boo in his mouthy waaaaaaaaaah hehehe
Got a couple of unexpected moneymakers after this week's Rite Aid email came with store coupons for Chapstick and Biotene. Hint: Hold on to those peelies when you don't use them! Also, changed up the Arm & Hammer deal a bit by taking away two kid toothbrushes and replacing them with two Orajel mouth sore treatments because the hubby needed them. That was a pleasant surprise; thought I'd have to pay full price for once! (well, full price minus my 20% Gold Discount :-p )
