    Boy, with eggs that cheap, why not buy a lot more! They’ll keep in the refrigerator for 2-3 weeks.

    I have that problem with coupons a lot. It seems like cashiers don’t pay attention when scanning sometimes. It just happened to me at Kroger. I was trying to get out of the next person’s way while also watching that my 4 year old didn’t run out the door. When I realized that two of my coupons weren’t deducted, the cashier told me I had to go to customer service. My Kroger is always busy with people doing Western Union transactions, and the wait would have been a good 30 minutes. Not worth waiting 30 minutes for $1.25 in missed coupons 🙁 I wish they would have a separate desk for those Western Union and Lottery transactions so that people who are overcharged wouldn’t have to wait in a long line.
