CVS Plan: Free and Cheap

This week I only have one 3.99ECB to work with. (I spent the one on my mother's account on toilet paper). My parents and grandparents only like Crest toothpaste, not Colgate, so this week is a good opportunity to get them some of that while only decreasing my ECBs by 2. Here's the plan:

Transaction 1: 1 Bayer Aspirin Quick Release Crystals at $2.00 (get 2ECB)
1 Crest at 2.88 (get 2ECB)
--------------------------------------------------
4.88
-.75 $.75/1 P&G Crest Q
-----
4.13, spend 3.99ECB + change, get 4ECB back

Transaction 2: 1 Crest at 2.88 (get 2ECB)
2 Rimmel lipstics at 2.99 (bogo)
Easter clearance items/filler 1.00 or more
-------------------------------------------------------
6.88
- .75 $.75/1 P&G Crest Q
2.00 two $1/1 Rimmel Qs
-------
4.13 or so, spend 4ECB + change, get 2ECB
Thanks to Money Saving Mom for coupon matchups and help figuring out these deals.
