Seems the California egg prices were slow to go up and now are slow to come down. Wife went shopping. Told her if eggs are still $5/dozen, only buy 1 doz; if under $4 get 2. She came home with 2 dozen saying they had a 3rd on the shelf but it had a bunch of broken eggs in it. I figured she'd found a great sale...no, $4.80/dozen. It didn't seem to bother her that, per pound, eggs cost more than bacon. Seems crazy to me.

Kudos to Winco for beating a competitor's egg prices. Safeway has an 18-ct carton of eggs on sale for $2.99, limit two, membersip req'd in their tracking program. When I went to Winco yesterday, their 18-ct carton was $2.88, no limit, no tracking other than your credit card. Two weeks ago that same 18-ct carton was $6.48, after being $4.70 the week before that.

It's kinda fun riding the egg-price rollercoaster. I shop where the prices are cheapest and never run low on eggs.

It's been a week since I checked but my Safeway was over $4/dozen in moderate quantities. I'm sticking with Costco large quantities until things stabilize.

More Kudos to Winco. The price of an 18-ct carton has dropped to $2.88 and has been there for the last week or two. That works out to $1.92 per dozen.

Mayo is still $2+ more per jar than pre-runup, but now I make my own.

Smart and final had eggs for <$2/doz (limit 2) but you had to digitally clip a coupon. Oh well it was time I learned the 21st century of what my mom did.

Even more Kudos to Winco! The price of an 18zct carton of eggs today was $2.07, or $1.38/dozen...and it was the 1st of the month! Other prices are high but I've noticed they've changed some suppliers to get cheaper prices in the veggie department.
