    My transactions were $5.82…but a good extra 82 cents with what I got:)

    3 dozen eggs (reg $2.19, CVS has some expensive eggs! yikes!)
    1 Olay Sheer Moisture Ribbons body wash (Reg $7.00)
    1 Secret sample size deodorant (Reg $1.49)
    2 Oral B Pulsar tooth bruses (Reg $4.99 each)

    I did the same thing you did, except for I got two pulsar tooth brushes (both with $3 coupons) instead of one. And I used a $3 off of $15 purchase coupon before any other coupons. I got $7 ECB in first transaction, then bought the eggs in the second transaction. My husband is a weight lifter and we really needed eggs! But it was a GREAT purchase for the money.
