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.

*NOTE: The last time I did a Finish rebate, they only gave me back what I paid out of pocket after rewards, IIRC, so make sure you still owe at least this much on your receipt after coupons/rewards. I assume I won't be reimbursed for the coupon amounts since they're itemized right below each item on the receipt.*
