Unless you've been actively avoiding checking the news (we don't blame you), you should by now be aware of one of the biggest business deals of the past decade: Amazon's acquisition of Whole Foods. What, exactly, does that look like when it comes to our shopping habits? Lower prices.

In a recent joint press release, the two companies announced the immediate slashing of prices of some of Whole Foods' best selling items.

The press release reads: “'We’re determined to make healthy and organic food affordable for everyone. Everybody should be able to eat Whole Foods Market quality—we will lower prices without compromising Whole Foods Market’s long-held commitment to the highest standards,' said Jeff Wilke, CEO of AmazonWorldwide Consumer. 'To get started, we’re going to lower prices beginning Monday on a selection of best-selling grocery staples. [...] There is significant work and opportunity ahead, and we’re thrilled to get started.'”

Just in time for your weekly grocery shopping, here is a list of products that will be cheaper starting today:

- Organic large brown eggs
