I just bought a carton of 18 eggs at Harris Teeter a few days ago on sale for $1.97. Their cheapest gallon of milk is $2.99.

We have a store with eggs on sale for $1.47 a dozen and milk $2.47 a gallon.
You have to stock up. We'll go with 4 gallons of milk which will freeze if needed and 5-6 dozen eggs.
The sale will be back as it is a repeat sale every 2-3 weeks so we stock up until the next sale.

At Aldi in Chicagoland:


Milk $1.99 per gallon.
Eggs $2.05 per dozen


I think eggs will be substantially lower in three months assuming no more breakouts of the bird flu in Iowa and Minnesota.

California has a cage-free egg law. They're about $3.49-3.89 (even at Walmart!). $4.49 if you buy organic.

I buy the 18-pack of Eggland's Best... I think they were $5.99. Milk is usually $4.69/gallon. Both are usually a buck less at Sam's Club, so I stock up when I have time to go out that way. I eat a lot of eggs, and don't plan on changing that anytime soon.

Another fear & uncertainty price gauging?
It's about supporting farms that treat the chickens humanely. It costs more to let them roam around uncaged for awhile each day. And now the trend is going beyond merely letting them out of the cage to mill around the barn floor. It's about "pastured" chickens; letting them out of the barn altogether, so they can hunt and peck under blue sky in the pasture.

Pretty soon there will be cable TV for the chickens, and paid vacation breaks. Unionized chickens, that's where it's all headed.

Have you ever seen the way the caged chickens have to live? They can't even stand up or move around. I won't even tell you about turkey farms.

Trader Joe's--6 for 2. 89. More natural ones. I don't care if they're 4.89 if I need them.
