Crazy Coupon Capers

Last week I didn't have a picture to show you because I hadn't done my shopping yet. I told you I was going to Rite Aid to get some diapers. Here's how the trip turned out:

2 packs Huggies diapers - $24.98 (one got conscripted for use as soon as I walked in the door - that's how badly I needed them!)
1 tub Huggies wipes -$2.50
1 Huggies baby wash - $2.50
1 Maybelline mascara - on clearance for $1.69
2 L'Oreal foundation - on clearance for $1.98 each
Total = $35.63

Used $5/$25 Rite Aid coupon
(2) $1.50 diaper coupons
(1) $.75 wipes coupon
(1) $1 baby wash coupon
(1) $1 mascara coupon
(2) $3 foundation coupons
New total = $18.88 plus tax

My total with tax was over $20, so the cashier let me use my $20 gift of savings certificate. She actually owed me $.04 at the end of the transaction.
So I left the store 4 cents richer, and I will get back $6 in rebates and a $10 gift card for the Huggies products.

How did you do? Did you get any great deals with your coupons or have any interesting experiences? Link in or leave a comment and let me know!
