My CVS Scenario ($3.45 OOP with $3.99 in ECB's left)

I started this week with $2.00 in ECB's to use. I ended up spending $2.45 OOP, got 8 items and left with $3.99 in ECB's still! If you don't know what an ECB is, please read my CVS 101 post here. Anyway, I ended up doing 7 transactions and was happy to get a nice young man for my cashier who happily played the CVS game right with me!
