CVS This Week

I'm definitely a newbie to CVS and the Drugstore Game. I've always enjoyed getting deals and using coupons, so CVSing makes sense to me. I am definitely not in the realm of spending less than a $1 each trip, but I know I am spending less on items that we need and beginning to create a stockpile of certain items. This is a breakdown of this week's CVS runs.

Transaction 1:
Fusion Razor - $9.99
SmartRinse Mouthwash - $3.49
Minus $4.00 Razor coupon
Total: $9.48
Paid for with $9.00 in ECB, $0.78 OOP
$7.49 in ECB earned ($4.00 on razor, $3.49 on mouthwash)

Transaction 2:
2 Pampers Swaddlers Sz. 2 - $7.99 each - $15.98
1 Pampers Cruisers Sz. 3 - $7.99
2 CVS Bandaids - $1.99 each - $3.98
Minus $2.00 Pampers coupon
Total: $25.95
Paid with previous $7.49 in ECB, $19.79 OOP
$8.98 in ECB earned ($5.00 on diapers, $3.98 on bandaids)

Transaction 3:
1 Candy - $1.77
3 Glade Air Fresheners $0.88 each - $2.64
2 Bounty 8 Roll - $4.96 - $9.92
2 Charmin 9 Roll - $4.96 - $9.92
1 Huggies Baby Wash - $3.49
Minus 2 $0.25 Bounty coupons
Minus 2 $1.00 Charmin coupons
Minus 1 $0.75 Candy coupon
Minus 1 $1.00 Huggies coupon
Minus 1 $0.88 Glade coupon (B1, G1)
Minus 3/$15 coupon
Total: $19.61
Paid for with previous $8.98 in ECB, $11.54 OOP
$12.00 ECB earned ($10.00 on Charmin/Bounty deal, $2.00 on Huggies)

Transaction 4:
SmartRinse Mouthwash - $3.49
Minus $1.00 coupon
Total: $2.49
Paid for with $2.oo ECB, $0.59 OOP
$3.49 ECB earned (SmartRinse)

All told, I spent $32.70 OOP, with a lot of diapers (115 diapers, approx $0.14 per diaper)
And, I have $13.49 to spend in ECB. By the way...these were not separate transactions in a single visit. We were close several times this week, hence a few trips. :-)
