Weekend Update! I Spent $5 and SAVED $138!!

So..I went to the drugstore this morning with mixed results. Mostly good though =)My trips to Rite Aid and CVS are pictured below.
Grand total? $5.58 oop with $13 +UPR to use next week at Rite Aid and $18 ECBs to use at CVS!
This transaction went well-I guess I'm not just that good at math (no surprise) because my total was wonky. Also, the mini-screen that you look at isn't the exact same screen the cashier looks at--so I thought I had $7 to put ECB towards but somehow my total was negative $2.60, with $2.67 I ended up paying .07cents....I have no idea how this happened. Oh worked out =)
2 John Freida $10 (with $3 ECB back)
2 Schick Razor $8.99 ea (buy $20 get $10 back)
1 Schick Shave Gel $3.19
2 Windex $2.50 ea
2 Pledge $2.50 ea (Buy $10 get $5 ecb back)
2 Stayfree Bogo $3.99
-$4/$20 printed from coupon machine
-2 $5/1 Schick Razor 6/13 SS
-$.75 off Schick Gel 6/27 RP
-bogo Stayfree 6/27 RP
-2 $1/1 Pledge 5/16 SS
-2 $1/1 Windex printable 5/9 SS
-2 $3/1 John Freida 6/6 SS
= $15 (plus tax)
-$18 in ECB (oops! the weird screen messed me up and somehow the register took the ECB to cover tax--usually all tax is out of pocket!)
=.07 with $18 ECB back for next week! 
I saved over $65!!
(3 John Freida, 5 cleaning supplies, 10 schick)

Rite Aid
Here I was a little annoyed because I did two bogo coupons with bogo items--so they should be free! Apparently though he made the "executive" decision that he would only give me half the value of the coupon so I was paying $1 each? I understood the logic but he didn't understand coupons and I wasn't in the mood to worry about it so I ended up doing a return on the bogo items....blarg. For the sake of sanity I'll omit them from my purchase list below =)

Transaction 1:
4 John Freida $20
-$5/$20 video values 
-4 $3/1 John Freida 6/6 SS
-$1/$10 Haircare purchase Wellness Coupon
=$2 plus tax (around $4) with $10 +UPR back!
I ended up only paying .98cents b/c of the cashier who did the weird coupon stuff and then had to take my return. Blarg.
I saved $32!!

Transaction 2:
1 Crest White Strips $22.99 (with $10 +UPR)
1 Crest Pro Health Toothpaste $2.99 (With $2.99 SCR)
1 Secret Deodorant $1.99 ($1 +UPR)
1 Venus Razor $5.99 ($2 +UPR AND $2 SCR)
-$5/$25 printable video values
-$10/1 Crest White Strips 6/27 RP
-$1/1 Crest Toothpaste 6/27 RP
-$2/1 Venus 6/6 PG
-$2/1 Venus Rite Aid P&G SCR coupon
-.50 Secret
-$1/$10 Oral Care Wellness Coupon
= $12.50
-$10 +UPR from last transaction
=$2.50 plus tax ($4 something) I also rec. $4.99 SCR, $13 +UPR for my next purchase!
I originally intended to buy the toothpaste on my third transaction but mixed my coupons up and ended up paying a little more out of pocket than I needed to. 
I saved $41!!
