    bjluckeey - interesting that the Aldi in Cary egg price went up. Thanks to the heads up on the milk and egg prices!

    I just picked up 4 cartons of eggs at Walgreens for $2.97 (used reward points to get $1 off). We clearly eat a lot of eggs! :-)

    Em2s - you are so very welcome!

  • bjluckeey Jan 13, 6:10 p.m.

    Aldi's in Garner has a gallon of milk for $3.19 and A dozen of eggs it's $1.39. Aldi's in Cary has a gallon of milk for $1.79 a gallon and a dozen eggs for $1.05.

    Thank you, Faye! This list helped me to catch a couple of items and shop the better price rather than overpaying at another store. I so very much appreciate your thoughtfulness!!!
