The Price of Eggs! Mid Month Update

April 14th, 2022 at 04:28 pm

I went to the grocery store to pick up a few things this morning and checked on the price of eggs. An 18 count of large store brand eggs was tagged at $4.15. Yikes! Just 10 days ago on 4/4 the price was $3.39. That’s an increase of .76 cents in just 10 days! They were well stocked though so no shortages yet.  


My store is still running the club card deal where you can get an 18 count of store brand large eggs for just .99 cents when you use 100 club card points. I bought 2 cartons of 18 back on 4/4 to stock up and paid just $1.98 for both. I’m glad I did! I really wonder if they will continue to run this deal. I usually have an egg every morning for breakfast but now I am having oatmeal a few times a week instead.  


I also usually buy Hellman’s mayo as my preferred brand, but it was up to $4.99 (and I think that was a sale price). I bought the Weis store brand instead for $2.99 for the same size and it tastes just the same to me, so I’ll be purchasing that instead from now on. 


They are still running the ground meat deal, so I got one pack priced at $12.26 for just $2.71, and a second pack priced at $12.46 for just $2.75. I made a meatloaf with some of it and froze the rest. I also wonder how much longer they will be able to offer this club card deal too. 


Yesterday I put together 2 canned goods storage racks that I bought to organize my pantry. They are great! They are stackable and hold 36 cans each. They were really easy to assemble, are pretty sturdy and are angled so when you take a can out from the front the rest of the cans roll forward. I also wrote the use by dates in black marker on the cans so I can easily see them. Love it! 


My brother and I went out to lunch yesterday, my treat. We always have fun and good conversation, and it was nice to get out on a beautiful, warm sunny day. The weather here hit the mid 80’s yesterday with the same for today, then it will plummet and get chilly again over the weekend.  


My cousin and his wife are having us all over for dinner on Easter. It’s been a while since the whole family has been together, so I am looking forward to it.  


I also did my first senior center volunteer free grocery delivery to the seniors who are unable to drive or have no transportation. I just text or call them when I am on my way. 2 of the ladies were out on their front porches so I got to meet them (at a distance and masked) and chat for a few minutes. They were so nice, and it was such a pleasure to be able to help them. The other 2 people did not come out, so I left their groceries at their front doors. I really enjoy doing this and will continue for the foreseeable future.  


I hope everyone has a great day and upcoming weekend!

    Wink, I often buy eggs at CVS. If they aren’t on sale - which they frequently are - I usually have some percent off coupon that I can apply.
    Good reminder about oatmeal. I bought a bunch on sale and I should put it back in rotation.

    I hope you get the same ‘delivery route’ people each time - you will maybe not become ‘friends’ but you’ll get to know each other.
    For the two who didn’t come out, could you put a little note telling them your first name and that you live in town or something to give them a human contact? That might encourage them to come out too. Feeding the soul as well as the body!

    How wonderful with your deliveries. I'm sure those folks were delighted, even if they didn't come out. I think Lots of Ideas has a great idea about the notes.

    There was a political cartoon in today's paper with the Easter bunny giving one egg to each kid says one per person due to the price of eggs!

    Groceries are just ridiculous and I don't see it getting any better for the foreseeable future.

    I bought two 18-count cartons of eggs at Sam's before the price started to climb. I'm glad I did! They were $5.93 -- that's $1.97 a dozen! Now that I know how much it will cost to replace them, I'm using them more sparingly.

    What I find interesting is that even though the price of regular eggs has skyrocketed, the price of the pastured chicken eggs I buy has remained the same or has been consistently for sale at one store or other. It's going to be interesting if the cost of regular eggs rises to the cost of the eggs I buy. It's only around $1.40 off now. I only eat eggs a couple of times a week, but the guys eat breakfast burritos which takes 24 eggs and a pound of sausage to make 24 burritos. It's still doable for now, but if things go up, they may be eating a lot more oatmeal and I'll be eating a lot more peanut butter toast.
