my two CVS trips Saved 98%

This is my CVS shopping on Sunday 4/17. I paid a grand total of $1.23!!!! WOOHOO!!! I saved $91.45.
I actually had a negative total of almost $4.00 and had to throw in the edge shaving gel and tic tacs to get me to a positive balance. My subtotal was a negative $1.13 and I paid only $2.36 in tax = $1.23
I bought all of this in one transaction so I could use my $5/30..or was it $5/40 (can't remember) cvs email coupon. I scanned my card when I got to the store and got another $2.00 coupon that I used.
I had a lot of ecbs that I needed to use up, my stock pile is full so I am planning on lowering my month shopping budget and I won't be going to cvs to much. (yeah right! LOL)
Note... if you have the Nivea $3.00 mq coupons, use it at Walmart where you can get them for free!!! I didn't realize this until after I purchased mine at CVS....but I did have a few more coupons, so I ran to walmart and picked up 3 more for free!
I bought:
2 Hellmann's mayo, bogo $5.99, used 2- .75 mq (I think this would be cheaper at  Publix this week, but I wanted to use up some ecbs)
1 edge shaving gel, $3.29, they wouldn't let me use my coupon for some reason????, got back $2.30 ecb
3 men's Nivea, $3.88 sale, used  3 $3.00 mq = .88 cents each
3 women's Nivea  same as above..(these 6 nivea will be donated...NO comments on how much body wash do I need...AMY...LOL)
