Thanks everyone! I'm going to go with a week, and I'm going to keep them in a container on one of my shelves. Thanks again for all the help!

I generally boil my eggs for the week (I take them to work with me to eat as a snack, or on my salad at lunch -- my husband eats them for weekday breakfasts) on Sunday.

These are the food safety facts with hard cooked eggs:
1. They should be kept for no longer than 1 week.
2. Store them in the carton on a refrigerator shelf; "not" the egg area on the refrigerator door.

Eggs in general last for a very long time with refrigeration. I had raw eggs left in my fridge when I went home for winter break and when I came back a month later, they were perfectly fine. Hard boiled eggs don't last as long because cooking them causes the shell to become more porous.

I also would think about a week is ok...but only if the shell doesn't crack during cooking. If the shell cracks then follow the 3 day rule.

How long would hard-boiled eggs last in the fridge? I want to cook a bunch up and have just one a day, so I want to know how many I should cook up in advance, Any help is greatly appreciated!
