Up To 227 Item in the $25 CVS Challenge!

I'm way behind on updating my $25 CVS Challenge - having a baby has cramped my shopping & blogging style :) I had/have $1.54 left, but that was a little deceiving because when I did transaction #39 on Nov. 26, they gave me $5 cash because I initially forgot to use the coupon.
