The BEST Deal on Eggs I Think I’ve Ever Gotten!

I’m currently challenging myself to stick with a $70 grocery budget for our family of five. This includes almost all of our breakfasts, lunches, snacks, and dinners + most household products (toiletries, laundry soap, etc.).

After two whole weeks of not stepping foot into a grocery store since we were in South Africa, it felt really wonderful to be back to shopping today. And Kroger didn’t disappoint!

I was mostly just stopping by to see what markdowns they had and to grab the deal on organic frozen veggies. But I scored big time when I went to the dairy section and saw they had Simple Truth Cage Free Brown Eggs for just $0.99!!!! I was thrilled to get them for $1.99 per dozen two weeks ago… so I could not believe this price when I saw it.

And if we didn’t already have 4 dozen eggs in our fridge and weren’t going out of town really soon, I would have bought 10 dozen. But I settled on 6 dozen since that felt like a good amount! 🙂

I gave two dozen away to a friend today and will be using the rest for scrambled eggs, fried eggs, hard boiled eggs, French Toast… and baking. And I also might make a quiche. We all love eggs, so I doubt we’ll have an issue using them up in the next few weeks!

I also picked up the Free Friday candy — which my kids were thrilled about. We basically never buy anything with food coloring in it, so it’s always a really, really big deal when I actually buy something that has it in it. But these were free and I knew my kids would absolutely go nuts about them (they did!) so I surprised them with a very unexpected treat.

I’m not sure what we’re going to use these for — maybe for our road trip to Arkansas at the end of the month? We’ll see!

Here’s what I ended up buying:

    You can actually make up the filling for your quiche and freeze that in the freezer to use up the eggs! I’ve done that before and they turn out fine, just thaw overnight, mix well, put into your pie crust, and bake.

  • Lana says:

    Our Aldi had eggs for 23 cents a dozen for months when Lidl opened here. We got so spoiled,

  • Cheryl says:

    I found out that you can freeze eggs. I just did this the other day when I was going on a 12 day trip and realized my 9 dozen eggs would be expired. I Crack the eggs into a bowl, beat, and I had read that to keep the yolks from jelling, you should add a touch of salt per cup for savory dishes or a bit of sugar for sweet dishes. I put 4 eggs in each baggie with sugar since I am a baker. Labeled and froze. Hope that helps.

    • I’ve heard of this, too! I’ve never had to do it, though, because I often keep eggs for a few weeks after the sell by date and have never had an issue with it.

      • Cheryl Peters says:

        I never had a problem with expired eggs, milk or cheese, as long as it still tastes good. However I am a home baker, making cupcakes for craft fairs, weddings and parties, and I only use fresh ingredients for that. I even have a separate fridge for my baking. By the way, I love that you go to Africa. I have been to East Africa several times, and it was the best time of my life.

  • They are 1.99 and up for organic soy free cage free eggs all the time at Natural Grocers. 🙂 I love Natural Grocers. They only carry the best organic products.

  • Cristina Powers says:

    What about the meat potato quiche you have posted on here? I love and make it a lot.
    I also made this with a few modifications (used 2x the eggs called for plus chopped onions) and it was way better than I expected.
