Bargain of the Week

Egg Prices are Crazy Low (Finally)

For the past year, eggs prices skyrocketed to over $2 a dozen in many cases for large size. Just in the past month or two, they have come down -- way down. Last week, MrConsumer found large eggs for 50 cents a dozen at Price Rite Supermarkets (in MA)... and it wasn't an advertised sale.

Another example in the Boston area: 99 cents for 18 large eggs (Market Basket).
