actually i really screwed this one up:

mistake #1
i grabbed the ambi bar soap since they had one, but i didn't realize i would only get back ecb on one ambi, since i had already gotten 2 previously. for some reason i had it in my mind that the limit was 5 not 3.

mistake #2
gave my ecb before coupons used the wrong amount. meant to use $7 ecb, but i must have given the cashier an extra $2 in ecb. so i went into the negative and thats why i threw in the gum and mints.

can't really complain since i still got back more than i spent, but if i had done this correctly i would have had a profit of $6.02!
