In my daily reading of my favorite blogs (I know, do I work??...yes ALOT...but I tend to keep busier than most.....and even in downtime of reading I am pacing or folding, or getting ready to teach, or prepping meals, etc.
Back to eggs. Prices have been slowly increasing. More and more I see REGULAR prices for a dozen being over three dollars, sometimes almost four dollars for a store brand. FORGET organic eggs. It's why I am so appreciative of the eggs I am gifted occasionally from a student. I also am constantly on the look out for store flyer coupons, savings star, Ibotta, Target Shopping Cart deals on eggs to at least save a bit of money. I also check BJ's wholesale for their large case of eggs (I did purchase one of these to help with my holiday baking). The occasional .99 a dozen deal is like finding 'golden eggs!'
Well, in my daily reading of One Hundred Dollars A Month I was directed to read this NPR posting regarding new egg regulations in California.
It seems that the increased egg prices are a trickle down symptom of these new regulations. You can read this full article here NPR article on egg regulations.
I am totally supportive of chickens living healthy happy comfortable lives.
I won't be grumbling so much about egg prices any more.
