Horrible CVS trip, Lessons Learned

So I went into CVS to get diapers, some body wash and toothpaste for around $13. Sigh. First mistake, I picked up the wrong Crest Toothpaste. I picked up the bigger one, that is not free after ECB's (good thing this is a month long deal). I ended up paying like $25 OOP, but returned the crest for a refund of $4.20 on a gift card. SoI guess it wasn't too bad, but I'm mad at myself...the other mistake, I forgot to give her my $5/$25 coupon (what a waste). I'm so sad. Lesson: I need to be more organized with my game plan!

$27.34-$9.46 Refund = $17.88 on 2 Pamper's cruisers, 2 oil of olay body washes, Lypsyl lip balm and the Oral b flossers (which I had the Q at home to save $1 more...brutal night). I was told by a friend the flossers are junk, but I got a $2 off $10 purchase and was going to use it with the RIGHT CREST to totally score a lower OOP and get more ECB's back. Didn't happen!

I still haven't made it out with ALL of my Qs!! I am SO overwhelmed with all of it, and then I read your posts and think WHAT IN THE WORLD, HOW DO I DO THIS!! Maybe I should just take baby steps and not think that I have to be a pro from the get go. Getting a whole new batch of Qs today. Are you interested in the extras??

Of course mama! No need to stress. It's all a learning process, but I think it helps to have a friend or two that is doing it also. So we can share deals or scenarios. I'm curious about how you did...when you do it. YOU CAN DO IT! I believe in you! =)
