    Thanks for the reminder, TopCopWife! I think I total left Kroger off the list above this week. I'll go back and add any deals from them in.

    In my mid-week paper there is a 4 day sale for Kroger offering their 18 count eggs for $1.99, not as good as our HT last week but if someone needs egg still a decent price.
