Though I bought other groceries this week, this was by far the “deal of the week”! Whenever I’ve at King Soopers, I glance at their dairy section to see if I can find anything marked down on manager’s special. It’s been pretty void of deals lately, but this week I almost squealed with joy when I saw several packages of eggs marked to $1.99.
$1.99 isn’t a great price, unless they happen to be organic and cage free eggs, and unless you happen to have $1 off coupons to bring the price down to 99¢ per dozen, or 89¢ per dozen for the non-organic but cage free ones!
“Normal” eggs haven’t even gone below 99¢/dozen for a long time, so I quickly snatched up six cartons of eggs and thanked God for His provision. Now I can make brownies, I thought! ;)
These eggs were a day or two from their sell-by date, but that makes no difference to me – even the experts say you can keep raw eggs in the refrigerator for about 3 weeks after you bring them home (4-5 weeks after their packing date).
‘Fess up – how long have you kept eggs in your frig? I think the longest for me has to be about a month. I don’t think I’ve ever thrown eggs away – we don’t usually have a problem using them before they go bad!
