Cheap diapers and wipes!

I surprised myself at the checkout this afternoon!  I got diapers and wipes even cheaper than I was expecting!  I had a few nice coupons, including a $5/$30 and a free $5 gift card when you "have a heart to heart with your pharmacist" in the mail today.  I'm not sure what a heart-to-heart entails, but they just gave me one (though it took 10 minutes and a manager to figure it out).  Here's what I got:

Transaction #1:

(3) Snickers Eggs $1.50
-$1.50/2 Mars Seasonal Items (since they were $0.50 ea., I got 3 of them for free)
-$0.25/2 Mars chocolate CVS coupon
(1) CVS cough drops (hubby's sick) $0.99
(1) Fiber One brownie bars (apparently, they aren't that bad)  $3.99
-$1/1 Fiber One bars (inside specially marked cereal)

=$3.82 (on the $5 gc from the pharmacy)
ECBs: 4 (a rain check  for the brownies from Black Friday--they never expire!)

Transaction #2:

(1) Huggies wipe 3 pk.  $5.99
(1) Huggies Box $19.99
-$2/1 from Sunday's paper
(2) Trim nail clippers (the cool ones with the nail "catchers" on them) $5.93

-4 ECBs (from previous transaction)
-10 ECBs (from last week)
-$1.18 (gift card)

CVS cash card: $10

Then I got enticed by the clearance bin...

Transaction #3:

(1) CVS heat pack (it's a reusable Thermacare--so awesome!!) $3.37
(1) Bioluxe trial hair spray (since I use hair spray about twice a year...) $0.80

=$4.22 (on CVS cash card)

So, I paid $11.11 out of pocket for $66.25 in products!  Considering I would have paid that for the diapers alone, I'd say it was a good trip!
