Have you bought eggs recently? I usually have quite a stash in our fridge, so when I went to buy eggs today I about died! And we have a location to buy eggs (typically) at a great price!
Eggs more than doubled, all in response to the recent bird flu epidemic.
I only bought one dozen because we were clean out of eggs. Yes, I want to buy farm fresh, free range eggs…but I am also quite budget conscience…and while I fully agree that we will pay for health in either our grocery bill or doctor bill…we have to eat and we have cut out 99% of processed foods.
We know someone who sells free range brown eggs and now they are totally a bargain, thanks to the bird flu! So that is what we will be buying, until….we get our own fresh eggs!!
We recently bought a gorgeous house, and just brought home baby chicks! We are going to have back yard chickens!!! I am so excited! Hubby grew up with chickens; I am so grateful that he will be able to teach me all I need to know about our egg laying pets. ;)
So, that is our response to the rising cost of eggs! Albeit, indirectly…as we got the chicks before we knew about the bird flu. Who else has backyard chickens?
Blessings & JOY ~
