Since the semester is winding down for me and things are getting crazy, I’ve decided to take it easy on the shopping for the next week or two.  I’m only planning on stopping at the stores that are on my way to work/school: CVS and Walgreens.  Sometimes you just have to make life a little easier for yourself!

As always, you can review some coupon basicsThe Lazy Girl’s Guide to Couponing, and my favorite stores’ policies to learn how to get started at each store.  Happy couponing!

DISCLAIMER: As always, these deals are based on circulars and internet searches (see our Blogroll for some of my favorite deal-sharing sites) for the BEST deals in/on stores/products I visit/use in the Baltimore metro area.  Remember that there are some great deals out there that I just don’t use (for example, we have very little use for things like baby food in our house, no matter how cheap it is!), some price/coupon value differences by store and region, and some deals that just aren’t low enough to meet my stockup price. When I do my shopping and find mistakes or corrections, I update the list as soon as possible.  In the meantime, please feel free to share corrections, deals I missed, and other useful info!
