CVS Extra Care Deals!

Ok, I've been hearing from friends and neighbors (and reading on moneysavingmom.com) all about the great deals available at CVS using their Extra Care Card. I got a card awhile ago but have felt a little lost as to how to make the most of it and therefore haven't used it at all. Until today!
Its kind of confusing trying to keep track of the sales, the Extra Care Bucks (E.C.B.), etc. I still feel like I need a tutorial. Maybe have someone who knows the system take me on a few trips to get the hang of things. Anyway, here's what I got:
2 boxes Wheat Thins (Nate and I have them for snack alot) - reg $3.99 ea - on sale 2@$4 - I paid $4
1gal Dean's 2% milk - reg $3.19 - on sale and had $.55 coupon - I paid: $2.24
1 Bic Soleil Razor - reg $6.99 - on sale and had $2 off coupon - I paid: $3.99 plus got $3 E.C.B.
1 Bic Soleil Refill - reg $6.99 - on sale and had $2 off coupon - I paid: $3.99 plus got $3 E.C.B.
I also used a $4 off a $20 purchase CVS coupon (click here to get your own coupon)
So.... what could have been a $25.15 bill became $10.22 with sales and coupons and on top of that I got $6.00 in E.C.B. * Not too shabby for a first try!
Now, I know I'm not exactly an expert CVSer or anything... but I saved a few bucks and I'm motivated to make the "Extra Care Card" work for me more in the future! Let me know if you have any tips on how to make the most of the CVS system!

It seems like a lot of work to me, but the more I read about it, it sounds like people are saving tons of money this way!
Once you have it all figured out you'll have to do a tutorial for the rest of us.:-)

I bought $50.00 worth of wart remover medicine for just $49.99. Now I just need to get some warts.
