    Very good to know, mhdeland! Thanks for the additional egg info!

    love2save - that is a good price on milk!

    Sorry aewagner - haven't been to Food Lion this week.

  • love2save2010 May 31, 2012

    Costco usually has good prices on milk. Last time I ran in there it was $2.75 for skim.

  • aewagner87 May 31, 2012

    Has anyone bought the freschetta pizza using the coupon @ FL? I want to know if the coupon will work.

  • mhdeland May 31, 2012

    They're cage free and hormone free, that's good for me. I've tasted them before and they're good eggs. Thanks Faye for all your hard work :-)

  • Faye Prosser - Smart Shopper May 31, 2012

    Are you sure Aldi's eggs are organic, mhdeland? It's a good price wither way for eggs, but I didn't think they were organic. If anyone has some in their fridge, let us know. :-)

  • mhdeland May 31, 2012

    Aldi's has their organic eggs 1dozen for $1.09 This is regular price. Better than Eggland's Best.
