2 - 18 packs of Cottonelle toilet paper $13.29 each, $26.58 On sale for $10 - $20

Regular total $100.07 Sale Total $61.38
So $61.38 plus tax... pretty good savings already, right? How about some coupons.
I used 2 - $2 off Listerine Zero Mouthwash (-$4)
5 - $2 off Wisk laundry detergent (-$10)
1 - $3 off Cottonelle CVS coupon I got at the kiosk (-$3)
(don't forget to scan your CVS card for coupons when you come in the door!)
That takes $17 off the total down to $44.38.
Then I had Extra Care Bucks from a previous purchase to use - $23, taking my total down to $21.38.
Now, the key here is that I will be getting BACK Extra Care Bucks - this is rolling them. The 5 bottles of Wisk will get me back $10 in ECBs. The 2 bottles of Listerine will get me back $5 in ECBs. The $25 worth of Cottonelle products will get me $10 in ECBs.
In the end with tax, I spent about $25 out of pocket, but I got $25 in ECBs back making everything FREE!!
So WHY would I call this a FAILED trip to CVS when I got so much for SO little??
A) I had Cottonelle coupons at home that could have been used
B) I had a CVS $4 off the purchase of $20 coupon IN MY HAND that I never gave the cashier.
I know... cry me a river.
