eggs are $3.99 a dozen

I don't know how often I will be buying eggs. I do know my need for them will shrink in time. I need them for energy at times so I am scewed. It has been about 2 months since I had any on my plate. I have intentions to have scrambled eggs this morning. But goodness how on earth do I allow this purchase to happen in the near future?

During these inflationary times there are things that I have refused to put in my cart, and eggs have been one of them. I will pay $1.50 for a dozen, which I still think is too much. But when I went to Ruler the other day they were $1.79 and I refused to buy them. I love my eggs, but I can live without them. I am not paying that.
I know they have gone way up in price. My two friends who raise chickens are having a hard time as the chicken feed price has skyrocketed wildly. I am fortunate that I am able to barter for my eggs most of the time, unless the chickens are in a molt period. But when I do pay, I try to think about it per serving. $3.99 is a lot. But figure the cost per serving of protein if you can think of it that way. One egg is still one serving of protein, which is pretty cheap at 34 cents when you think about it. Anyway, it made me feel better to just do cost per serving.
