All this for 21¢

I had a lot of fun shopping at CVS today. I went at lunch to try to get a second of the Act Total Care Mouthwashes that are free after ECB this week. When I got there, (surprise!) they were out. But, I did some wandering. I printed my coupons at the scanner and then I continued to wander. Did some price checking on the Valentine's day stuff, hoping to score a deal, but only 75% off and nothing that I really needed. Asked the cashier when they would discount again, she said they aren't doing 90% off anymore. I hope it's not true. Have my eye on some other 50% clearance I hope gets further reduced. As I wandered, noticed a blinkie and some peelies for Boost and then, on the bottom shelf, some clearance Boost Smoothies.

Here is what I got:

Transaction #1
1 - Boost Smoothie
1 - Vitamin D

-$2 Boost multipack coupon

Paid with $3 ECB and $0.11 OOP. Earned $2.99 ECB.

I left the store and thought, why wouldn't I grab a second Boost Smoothie for such a great deal. So, I went back in.

Transaction #2
1 - Boost Smoothie
2 - Gold Emblem nuts, snack size

-$2 Boost multipack coupon
-$2 $2/2 Gold Emblem Nuts CRT (no size limit indicated)

Paid with $0.10 OOP.

I noticed the nuts by chance as I was waiting to check out. The scanner seems to be printing a lot of the $2/2 Gold Emblem Nuts for me lately and I had previously looked in the snack row at the nuts and didn't see a deal. Glad I happened upon the 99¢ snack packs at the check-out. I'm not sure they were there even on Monday. I would have noticed them.
