    We just save a shoe box (or any kind of small-ish type box really)

    Wrap the eggs in newspaper so they wont be rolling around everywhere,

    And place them in the box, with the big end up. Store them in a cool-ish

    room, but not like, freezing. And you can store them for up to 7 days.

    good Luck! [​IMG]

    ETA: You'll be better off if you rotate them everynow and then. [​IMG]
