My Mom just told me this news last night. I just bought eggs at Aldi yesterday and paid $1.49 and those are the cheapest in town. Everywhere else is $1.89 and higher. Not good news at all.

We really use a LOT of eggs, between cooking/baking and one weekend bfst (usually) of eggs served as a protein. Hard boiled eggs are also a staple in the fridge, I boiled up 16 (2 8 ct cartons from Dollar Tree) just the other day. We also eat a lot of turkey. I tend to roast a whole one or a turkey breast once a month, from Fall thru Spring. We are currently out of turkey in the freezer, save a few tubes of fzn ground from Aldi's (substitute often for ground beef which costs twice as much), and some chopped, cooked turkey that I use in tacos, enchilladas, chilli. Always seems to be something. In addition to my cheapo DT eggs,which come in at $1.50/dozen, I buy 4 doz free range, organic eggs from my former OB/GYN and his nurse (he is now a gentleman farmer), paying $4/dozen which is super cheap for CT-many cahrge $10 and up!

We don't use a lot of eggs but eat a lot of chicken, not looking forward to rising prices

Can't believe prices will be going even higher---they are high as it is. My saving grace is casseroles--if I make one, most of the time it will feed us for two dinners, or at least a dinner and a lunch. And once the price is raised, it seldom returns to the previous level, even when the "emergency" ends.
