    fresh eggs will last about a month just sitting on your counter, about 3 months in the fridge ~ if you can keep from eating them up. Just store them pointy side down, in a paper egg carton.

    Or, if you have a very serious overload of eggs, you can always break them individually into a large ice cube tray & freeze them, then pop them out & put them into freezer bags, and just thaw out the ones you need when you need them. They may not be perfectly like fresh, but they will beat the heck out of dried. (Be certain that you don't have any strong odors going when you do this, it wouldn't do to have meat/ spicy food smells frozen into your eggs ~ we have a freezer for meats & soups, tamales, & that sort, and a freezer just for produce, such as fruit waiting to be canned, pies, chocolate, freezer jams, & the like.)

    Another fine trick is to give them away by the 1/2 dozen to favored neighbors ~ make sure they are nice & clean before handing them off. Not only will you gain neighbor points, but you might even score some fresh cookies once in a while as a result!

    As to those egg-beaters ~ I never did buy them ~ seems like a waste of money ~ how hard is it to whip up the eggs? lol,lol But you never know, I DO use pre-minced garlic when I am cooking, and some folks would balk at that ~ so there yah go ~ different strokes for different folks!

    It takes less than 1 min to scramble an egg. You create more work for yourself and dirty dishes trying to store them pre-scrambled. Also the eggs will absorb flavors from your fridge and won't taste fresh when you cook them. It really isn't advisable to pre crack them a week in advance.
