Saved Lots with Special Order items

My trip didnt go NEARLY as planned, hubby was in a bad mood and wanted to go look at cars so I had to take the all the kids with me ( a 3, 2, and 1 year old...it was a JOY)

I got really discombobulated because Im still pretty new at special orders and trying to break things down into $2.00 transactions was alot of work.
Needless to say I got it done, so here it is:
I special Ordered the Nivea, Woolite, Betty Crocker Frosting and Fisher Fusion Nuts

40 Fisher Fusion Nuts $40.00
24 Betty Crocker Frosting $30.00
1 5 pack of Kraft Mac n Cheese (the only 5 pack on the shelf! random! but at least I got to use my coupon) $3.75
1 capri sun 10 pack $2.00
1 Presto "flex" Kitchen Bags (large pack) $3.69
1 Woolite $4.50
1 Brita Pitcher $9.31
2 I cant believe its not butter $1.99ea $3.98
2 Sunfire Naan Bread $2.99ea $5.98
2 Dove Soap $3.19 ea or $6.38
1 Huggies Diaper Wipes $4.99
2 packs of Strawberries $2.28 $4.56
1 Presto Freezer Bags (clearance shelf) $1.24

Used
40 $1/1 Fisher Snack Nut Item, exp. 4/5/12 (SS 2/5/12) or TP
12 $3/2 Betty Crocker Decorating Item
1 Free Capri Sun WYB Kraft mac n cheese 5 pack
1 $3/1 Woolite
1 $4/1 Brita
2 .50/1 ICBNB
1 $1/2 Sunfire Brand Naan
Total Before Coupons :$126.40
Total After Coupons $37.40

I also did my Nivea in small transactions I did 10 transactions

5 of them like this:
8 Nivea Lip Care
used 4 $3/2Nivea
1 Woolite
used 1 $3/1 Woolite
1 Marcal Paper Towel Roll
Total Before Coupons $16.82
Total After Coupons: $1.26

4 of them like this:
and a couple I got Reynolds Recycled Foil
8 Nivea Lip care
used 4 $3/2 Nivea
1 Woolite
used 1 $3/1 Woolite
1 Reynolds Foil
used 1 .75/1 Reynolds Foil
Total Before Coupons :$16.26
Total After Coupons: $1.07
(just realized she missed one of my reynolds coupons on one of these but ah well)

and 1 like this:
6 Nivea Lip Care
used 3 $3/2 Nivea coupons
1 Woolite
used 1 $3/1 woolite coupon
Total: .60

Now, Im not saying this is the best way to do this. I probably could have found cheaper items to get so that I didnt have to pay so much OOP on the Nivea transactions but I did get things that I needed. I spent under $50 OOP total which isnt bad for $288 worth of items
