My First CVS Deals!!

So, after much convincing by Ronell, I've decided to try my hand at "couponing" and looking for crazy deals at CVS and other drug stores. I went out on Sunday and got the paper specifically so I could get the coupons. Actually, I bought two papers to get double the coupons (The Hartford Courant, and the Journal Inquirer). I also got flyers for CVS, Walgreens, and Rite Aid. I sat down on Monday and went through everything.

Here's my first CVS Deal (sorry, no pic):

What I Purchased:
(2) Twizzlers at 2/$3.00
(1) bag Skittles at $3.29
(1) bag M&M's Peanut at $1.97
(1) bag M&M's Cherry at $1.97
(1) 24 ct Tylenol Arthritis at $4.49
(2) Oral-B CrossAction Power Toothbrushes at $5.99 ea ($11.98)
(1) Aquafresh Toothpaste at $0.99
(2) Airwick Scented Oil Refills at 2/$5.00
(1) Airwick Scented Oil Warmer at $0.99
(1) Sally Hansen Nail Polish at $2.79
(1) Sally Hansen Color Quick Nail Pen at $7.99
Subtotal: $44.46

Coupons Used:
$0.75 off Aquafresh - making the toothpaste just $0.24
$1.00 off Airwick Scented Oil Refills - making them $4.00 or $2 each
Free warmer with purchase of Oil Refills - saving me $0.99
$3.00 off purchase of (2) Sally Hansen products - making the nail polish free and the Quick color pen $7.78
Buy 1 Get 1 Free Oral-B Cross Action Toothbrush - making them $5.99 or $2.99 each
$1.00 off Tylenol Arthritis - making it $3.49
Total Savings of: $12.73

ExtraCare Bucks Earned:
$6.00 from Oral-B CrossAction Toothbrushes
$5.00 from Sally Hansen Color Quick Nail Pen
$2.00 from Tylenol Arthritis
$5.00 from buying $10.00 in eligible candy
ECB Earned: $18.00

Total Savings from Coupons and ECB earned: $30.73
OOP cost before ECB: 31.73
OOP after ECB are factored in: 13.73

I also got the following coupons from the in-store scanner:
$3/$10 CVS Brand Purchase
$1.00 off Gold Emblem Water 6 pk or Larger
$1.00 on any CVS Brand Sunscreen Lotion or Spray

I wanted to use the $3/$10 CVS coupon today towards candy, but they didn't have what I wanted in stock. I guess I'll just save it for my next trip. Some of these things I needed - like the Airwick refills - so I could have done better if I didn't need those.

I guess this isn't too bad for my first time out. Next time will be better because now I have lots of coupons, and lots of ECB's.
