I was reading an article - someone cooked for a week on a 40 dollar
grocery bill. One item was eggs----99 cents. Oh yeah? I'd like to
know where the writer lived. I must be shopping in all the wrong
places.

Another item I remember on the list was freezer ground turkey for 99 a
pound. Is this possible?

If you shop places like Grocery Outlet, yes. And if you watch for
sales, yes.

I keep track of items in the various grocery circulars in whatever
area I am in at the time. I have seen instances when eggs were sold
as a special like that.

One has to look around. I must admit I am finding it difficult where
I am now, as Santa Barbara seems to not have any discount places and
mostly upscale stores..and regular supermarkets that rarely have
decent specials.

If I told you that eggs were 49 cent a dozen...would you move to Albania?

I doubt it...but we choose what we buy and what we need to cut back on.

Best to you and family!

I review the flyers every week. Sometimes the hispanic type markets
have eggs on sale at a decent price; however, this week it hasn't
happened. I saw eggs at TJ's at $1.49/ldz and bought 2-18 paks at
Sam's at $3.98. As far as the major markets, Ralph's, Albertson's,
Vons/Pavillions, unless there is a "cookin' holiday" coming up the
prices are outrageous.

That's how much Olivera's eggs sell for, under various house brands,
and pretend brands like "Ranch Eggs" at PW Super RIP.

Under Prop 2, egg prices should go up 25% to cover the cost of
additional square footage per chicken.

I think it unlikely to rise that much - but if it does happen, we can
afford it. What's more likely is eggs won't be used as a loss leader
as much as they usually are.

I remember my Dad *ranting* about having to spend $80 for a months
food to feed a dozen mouths. He was so upset about "outrageous" costs
of food! Of course, that was 45 years ago.

Now, you can spend $20 for one small bag of produce. Yikes!

Around Easter you could get them for that cheap but maybe only a dozen at a
time. I paid $1.59 the last time I bought eggs. The last time I got eggs,
they were free. I had a coupon. I currently have two coupons where if I
buy a dozen eggs I get free produce.

Here, at Aldi they fluctuate between $.79 and $1.19, but are usually
99 cents. For basted/over medium eggs I like to buy jumbos. Any way
you go, eggs are a bargain.

It is not uncommon to see eggs on sale for 99c in the Dallas area. Now
I have hens in the back yard who provide me with 3-4 eggs/day.

The last turkey I bought was 99c/lb. I bought 10# and froze it in .5
lb portions.

Small eggs go on sale here often for 99˘/2doz. Two dozen small eggs
equal 1 dozen jumbo. Small eggs are usually the best buy, just have
to crack more eggs.

this is something we really agree on... on woot in the last couple of days
they had aexerciser that was listed for 279.00 df has been looking for a new
item so she googled this when she saw it... the next best for the same modle
was 340.00 and next was over five hundred... so it certainly pays to shop
around and be aware... and shopping for bargians on stuff you are already

Ha! The old days were....the old days.....

When I joined the Military in 1971, my pay was $113 per/month. At the
time, I considered that a HUGE amount of money.

I never ate at any "quick food" place at all until I was in my 20s.
Until then, I'd never even been inside any hamburger joint. My first
impression when I did was that I didn't know what that stuff was, but
it wasn't what I called a hamburger. Nasty stuff. I still think so.

I eat at high-end restaurants. I've found that with food, you pretty
much get what you pay for. Not always, but mostly. I consider most
hamburger joint places nothing more than dog food servers. I mean,
look at the neat photo of a Big Mac and then compare it to the
squished, always off-center, nasty, thin piece of crap you get with a
micro portion of lettuce, (again always off-center) and micro-thin
piece of tomato, (again off-center) that you're served. When my kid
was a teen, he talked me into eating at a couple of those foul places.
It was like eating dog food on paste. Disgusting stuff.

At least at Chinese take out places, they use real meats and veggies.
It's priced at pretty stupid costs when compared to making the same
dish at home in your spare 10 minutes, but it's WAY better than one of
the dog food places like McDoggie or Doggiebuger King. haha

I fed a McDoggie Burger to my dog once. After gulping it down, the
first thing he did was try to get the taste back out of his mouth by
licking his butt.

I can't believe that on this site of great cooks, any of you would eat
that trash food. Please, tell me you're kidding.

We don't have a grade AA in Canada. Grade A is the highest.
Grades B and C are only sold for commercial baking or for further
processing into foods such as mayonnaise, noodles, or baked goods.
But, the ones I mentioned are ungraded.
Ungraded eggs may only be sold to an egg dealer or egg-grading
station, except for those sold by producers directly to consumers at
the farm gate, which is where I buy them.
I referred to them as jumbo because I weigh each dozen and the average
is over 70 grams per egg.

All previously assembled, wrapped in paper, sitting in a tray, then
heated to order in the microwave. Yummy.

What are you, the grammar police? If I wish to refer to this place as
a "site" then I'll do so. If it bothers you, put me in your killfile
or avoid my posts. Your choice to attempt to correct me is laughable.

If you think that crap they serve at doggiebugerking is a treat, then
you have no taste buds and wouldn't know good food if it snuck up on
you and bit you in the ass.

I've eaten lots of Army chow. It served it's purpose. It kept me from
being hungry. For the time and place, it was the least of your
worries.

Doggiebugerking is of the same level as Army chow. In fact, I ate LOTS
of Army chow that was light years above that crap in doggieburgerking
or any other burger joint serves. Navy chow was awesome! Probably the
best cafeteria type food I've eaten in my life was either in a Navy
chow hall or one with the Air Force. Of the three, Army chow was the
worst, but never as nasty as that crap in burger joints. Dog food.
That's all that crap is, and not even a very smart dog would eat it
twice without starvation knocking.

Did you come on this SITE today in a bad mood? That's not a rare
occurrence on this SITE. It's a SITE where that happens every day. If
you like FoodBanter so much that it pops into your head all the time,
why don't YOU leave this SITE and go to that group?

Messing with me just won't get you the response you're after unless
you're after being laughed at. I'm not impressed at your wit. I could
care less what you think *I* should call things or places.

Well, that was kinda fun...got anything else to say You, not You?

crack me up!

$2.19 last week for a dozen jumbo at King Soopers (Kroger). Something
like $1.89 the week before for 1 1/2 dozen large at Costco.

And what cracks me up is that the dimwits working there cannot get one
piece of anything on the doggieburger to be ON the bread. The roadkill
is half off the bread, the one 4" x 4" piece of soggy lettuce is half
off the bread, the limp, paper thin slice of tomato is half off the
bread, even the condiments are half off the bread. Every time.

I think they give an IQ test to work in one of those nasty places and
if you score over 50, they won't hire you.

Yes, I do online circulars. I look them up for all the grocery stores
for whatever town I am in. Then keep tabs on them when they update
them. So I usually know what is on sale somewhere in town.

good for you, keeping on that stuff allows saving and also if you are going
to a particular reason other than groceries, it allows one to save the gas
and get what you know you want without using extra gas and time to get
there,

Thanks.
Since gas is so expensive out here, I kind of combine trips into one.
Do all my errands at the same time, and do sort of a circular route.
That way, I can hit up places where they have specials that I want.

we have always done this to some degree or another, now with gas so high, we
flat keep a running list of errands, and groceries, when the list is big
enough or we need an item or to get an errand done bad enough the dh plans a
route and conserves as much gas as possible, its never a lot but i figure
any i am saving means it reduces the demand, which in my fantasy world i not
only save some pennies, if enough people did it then demand would slow and
prices would go down, i can't say i won't buy it i have to get to work, Lee

How faux-sophisticated of you to use a French expletive (which I had
to Google). Many economic interactions are parimutuel, and the more
savvy consumers have the advantage. That is so trivial compared to
the advantage that professional investors have over common folks,
which would horribly distort income distribution even under a taxation
regime such as existed during the Eisenhower presidency. My smart
shopper practices do so little to depress the buying power and wealth
of my fellow working class Americans as to be almost negligible.
Want to argue with me? You'll lose, or should I say, I think that the
likelihood that you'd lose is very probable? More likely, you didn't
even really understand what I was talking about.
I am amazed by the range of skills that this one guy I know who has
done some work for me has, but we all have our special areas of
expertise. Mine appears to be--other than the maintenance of
resilient flooring--political economy.

I maintain that, "You get what you pay for!!!!!'," is not the way
things work, and I challenge you to argue otherwise. Will you be the
first person to convince me that I'm wrong about the failings of pure
market ideology? I double dog dare you.

Not sure about in the area in general for cost of a dozen eggs, but the
store I shop in actually has EB eggs cheaper at the moment than store
brand, at 2.50 per dozen. I don't eat many eggs.

Free.

The Targets near me just brought in fresh produce and meats. I'm
trying to figure out what they got rid off to gain the considerable
floor space devoted to their expanded grocery department. But
nevertheless, they sent out a coupon to all Target card holders for a
free dozen eggs at the new and improved Target Grocery department.

I pay $2.00 a dozen when I get them from my girlfriend's daughter's
farm.
They are fresh picked that same day. I get them when her hens are
laying.
There's a big difference between store bought eggs and fresh farm
eggs.
The yolks are really dark yellow and taste better then store bought.

There's no way that even the biggest "farms" could produce them to
retail at that price.

There always seems to be some reason for high prices and a reason to
keep them high. For a while it was the cost of fuel and the high cost
of feed because so much grain was being used to produce bio fuels. Bird
flu would have a drastic effect on supply, driving prices up. Give the
farms a few days for a thorough cleaning, the hatcheries would turn out
a new crop of birds in three weeks and then give them 5-6 months to
start producing.
