    Any suggestions on a pretty way to keep your eggs? I am using a white ceramic bowl that I like but I am interested in what you all are using. Wire baskets? Bowls? I like to look at my beautiful eggs everytime I open the fridge and the cardboard cartons are ugly.

    I have a big collection of cheap wicker baskets. We use them to collect the eggs (so much prettier and easier to handle! And the smaller ones I put right into the fridge.

    Bought literally dozens of them real cheap just after Easter so sometimes I even use the smaller baskets to give the eggs to people.

    I bought a wire basket (small) From Dollar Tree A Dollar store sells them as well I put an old piece of cloth (checkered) In it and now it looks good sitting in the frige everytime I open it ( I save the cartons for selling).

    HINT: Cardboard cartoons make great worm food.
