    Em2s - it is a superb price, but if it's a long drive for you, you may want to reconsider. They have been out of a number of their amazing deals in the past and even though I get rainchecks, it's out of my way to go very often so I end up wasting the gas to get there. The Walgreens sale valid through today (.69/dozen) may be a better bet. Even if they are out, you can get a raincheck and pick them up next week if they are close to where you live. Good luck!

    Faye, Even with such a deal-happening-week, you amaze by pulling together this shopping list! Thank you!! ... and that egg deal at Carlie C's is incredible! I'm seriously considering fitting in a drive.
