CVS Trip - Did I Really Let Us Run Out?!?

I realized Sunday evening that we were using our very last night pull-up. Not just the last one in the package... the last one in the house. Did I really let us run out?!? Yep. So I headed out to CVS at lunchtime Monday. I didn't want to pay full price ($11.99), so I came up with a scenario that would allow me to pay only tax out-of-pocket. Unfortunately, the store didn't have the Glade products in stock. So here's what I did.

What I Bought:
1 pack GoodNites - $11.99
1 box Hefty One Zip storage bags - $1.00
2 Reese's cups (1 missing from picture) - $.50 each
2 Poise liners (to donate) - $4.00 ($2.00 each)
1 pack Bear cookies (kid-approved) - $1.00
2 Pepsi 20 ounce bottles (1 missing from picture) - $2.98 ($1.49 each)

Coupons Used:
-$4.00 off $20.00 purchase coupon from Ready Fill coupon booklet
- Buy 1- Get 1 FREE Reese's coupon from 8/23 SmartSource insert
-$1.50 off GoodNites printable coupon HERE
-$2.00 off GoodNites CVS coupon from a previous receipt
-$2.00 off x 2 Poise printable coupons HERE
-$5.00 ECBs

Merchandise Value: $21.97
Out-of-Pocket: $4.97 plus tax
Savings: $17.00 (77%)
ECBs Earned: $2.00 ($1.00 Poise, $1.00 Pepsi)
