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, 11/25/13



Didn't make it to Walgreens today. And I only had $16 in Rite Aid +Up Rewards, so I didn't buy that many freebies there today. I'll probably go back later this week and pick some more stuff up, assuming anything's left. Sigh.
