First, I blame their bagging system. Second, I blame the cashier that scans the items and just drops them, I guess not always in the bags! This isn't the first time we get home and an item or two is missing. This time it was Toms of Maine toothpaste. Not cheap. So we have to make yet another trip over there tomorrow to get our missing toothpaste. It's either still on the baggage thing, or on the floor.
The last time this happened, it was a pack of gum. Another time before, a bag of rice. The time before, a bag of popcorn. You think we would learn by now and not go there anymore.

Bring your own bags and if there are two of you there, have one person pay and the other do the bagging. Just tell the cashier you prefer to bag your own.

As the cashier loads a bag then spins the thing, grab the full bags and unload then.
Once the last bag is loaded in your cart checl the thing to make sure there is no other bags, I think your leaving a bag behind or not fully pushing forward the times so they lie in cashier contact.

This happened to me once. Customer service told me to bring in the receipt and the items were replaced. There's a time limit, so do it asap.

I always watch them very carefully, I also check the receipt before I leave the store, and make sure prices are right and all coupons scanned, because I really hate to go back because of some mistake. In fact I do it in every store.

Check the trunk of you car. Some little items tends to fall out and get lost in the trunk.

This started happening last year so we go to a different location now and we go over every item using the receipt to check immediately after paying in case we need to complain

We only have Walmarts and an Albertsons close home, and the price difference is significant.

This happened to me a few times, What i started to do is Now when I am done paying and my cart loaded, I just move ahead/to the side or wherever, still inside the store, and go thru all the bags and check the receipt to ensure I have everything. I also scan the prices to make sure I was not overcharged as this sometimes happens also.

I do this everywhere. Whole Foods here is notorious for using the wrong UPC on produce. HEB Central Market is the only store that never gets it wrong, and that is because you weigh your own produce and print your own labels for it there. Most stores will get UPC codes wrong from time to time, but sometimes the price difference can be significant so it's a good idea to scrutinize your receipt. I actually keep track of the UPCs in my head or note them down on a notepad as I shop. I was once overcharged by a significant amount on one shopping trip because the cashier keyed in several incorrect UPCs for produce. On one trip to Whole Foods, the cashier got every single one wrong...all to the store's benefit. My favorite Whole Foods in DFW is the one at Park Lane because it has self-checkout.

Very simple solution:

When the clerk hands you the receipt you say, "Did I get everything?" This prompts the clerk to look at the floor (human nature) and spin the bag holder around. They're prompted to look a second time. Since I started doing then I haven't had a problem. (I also take the responsibility to look myself.)
