LOL, best way to sell eggs is to let a 4 year old sell them

    Sold our first 1/2 dozen eggs today, my daughter sold them for $2. She's already planning to sell the next 1/2 dozen, she's my little entrepreneur [​IMG]

    Congrats to your daughter!!! [​IMG]

    $2 is super cheap. I sell mine for $3 and that's still really cheap around here. A bag of feed here is now $20.[​IMG]

    Grats! That must have been super cute to watch. The 'organic' 'freerange' eggs at the farmer's market are at least 4 a dozen. Mine are a steal since they really are organic and free-range and only sell for 2.50 a dozen. (ok as free-range as a 1/4 acre yard allows)

    I think a few people failed to notice that you said HALF DOZEN. And you're in Ohio. I think she did GREAT!

    Oh, too cute. And good for you for teaching your daughter "the sell". Now, you can teach her about finances, and take $1 away for feed and .25 for taxes and .25 for workers comp and another .25 for "expenses" leaving her .25 profit.[​IMG]
