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.

Heeeeeey drugstores, Harris Teeter has more freebies than you this week. What gives?!

*Two $3/$15 Facial Cleanser CVS coupons printed for me last week. One said "Try Aveeno!" and the other said "Try L'Oreal!" but that language is not controlling, so both can be used on these L'Oreal products.

WARNING: The rebate does specify that all purchases must be made on the same receipt, so you'll have to be able to use both $3/$15 coupons in the same transaction. They'll both scan just fine; it just comes down to whether you have a jerk for a cashier/manager.*
