Sunday 5/2 CVS Trip

So Gabbie and I had breakfast and headed out to CVS. I messed up somewhere but this is what I did.

1st Transaction
Venus Razor - Was supposed to be $7.99, but rang up $9.99. I am only realizing this after the fact. You have to REALLY be paying close attention.
$2/1 Coupon 5/2 P&G
$6 ECB
= Free, but I paid $2

2nd Transaction
3 AquaFresh Toothpastes $2.49
1 Aquafresh Iso-Active Toothpaste $3.99
3 - $1 Off Aquafresh printable
1 - $1 Off Iso-Active printable
.33 Caramel for filler item
Used: $6 ECB from Razor
Out of Pocket: $1.79 making each toothpaste .44 cents
Get Back: $5 ECB

3rd Transaction - This is where I messed up somewhere, I think it was because I combined 2 deals. AND I am seeing after the fact, that the cashier missed a B1G1 coupon for the deodorant. Again, PAY ATTENTION! I guess I shouldn't have taken a 3 year old with me. :)
Old Spice and Nivea
4 Nivea Body Wash
3 - $4 off Nivea Body Wash RP 5/2
B1G1 NIvea Body Wash May All You
4 Old Spice Deodorants at $4 each
2 Old Spice Body Washes
2 B1G1 Old Spice Deodorant RP 4/18
$1/2 Old Spice RP 5/2
2 Free Body Wash wyb Deodorant PG 5/2
Right Guard - $3.49 - This is what I should NOT have bought. I am going to take it back.
$1/1 Printable
Total Due: $14.83
Used: $5 ECB from previous transaction
Out of Pocket: 9.83
Got back $5 ECB for Nivea
Missing $2 ECB for Old Spice Purchases

Total Spent on each item: .89 Cents, but still have the $5 ECB so including that...
Total Spent on each item: .43 Cents. I guess not to bad.
After I return the right guard, it will be .21 cents for each item.

After all is said and done and I have realized my mistakes and the cashiers, I spent $16 out of pocket and have $5 in ECB's. I should have only spent around $4 including the ECB's. Poop.

I'm a little confused. Where are you getting these coupons you use at CVS? Are you getting them out of the sunday paper or online? How do you know which ones to use that will get you ECB's? -colleen
