    coupon4me - I love it! Thank you for posting such a sweet comment!! And those Eggland's Best eggs are really good. Some of the area Aldi locations have really low prices on eggs recently as well, but it's not all locations. Mine in Garner was .99/dozen last week. Enjoy your eggs!

    So grateful for this post. Needed eggs on the way home and never shop at Lowes but thanks to this post I got 5 dozen eggs for .89 each. Lowes was the closest and best price...all bc of this post! Thanks ms Faye! I'm appreciative for what you do!
