Free Range Organic Chicken Was the Better Bargain!

Free Range Organic Chicken Was the Better Bargain! Free Range Organic Chicken Was the Better Bargain!  Who knew, right?  To be honest, I was completely floored at the difference in price and the natural chicken is obviously the better choice.  My frugality led me to browse the meat market since I had the infamous H-E-B $3 off any fresh beef, chicken or seafood catalina coupon.
