Help with TinyDB for counter app

I'm making an app to to keep track of drinks for our upcoming cruise to see if the drink package pays off. Right now I only have a button for the cocktail, but I'll add the other drinks. I'm having problem with the tinydb. I can't get it to save the running total for the day. I am also using the App inventor companion for IOS and i'm getting out and getting back in and I don't know if that is the problem or if my blocks are wrong. (My Android tablet is dead and I can't find the charger). Here is what I'm trying to do:

How do you know, you do not show any blocks returning the saved tag/value?

If you are not getting any runtime errors, then the issue lies somewhere in your blocks - you only show a Button1.Click event......

I know this is a dumb question, but I don't know how to gets the values to return as the saved value?

If you have saved a value to a tinydb tag, then retrieve that value using the tinydb getValue block.
