- Keep some dehydrated eggs in your pantry.  You can't tell the difference when baking, and it may keep you from running to the store or in emergency situations.
- Buy the size of the eggs at the store that is the best bargain.
- Buy eggs on sale, crack them and mix them, and then freeze small portions in muffin
tins for baking.
- If you live near a source of country eggs, buy them from a farm.
