Organic food... What a rip off!

by jl333 on February 11, 2014   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Hard to believe that we used to live without organic food. Now in the posh area where I work, it's all the rage. I'm calling BS. It's a rip off. Just look at these organic dates. $6.00 a pound! Whoa. On a side note...I didn't fork out the money for these. They are my bosses. For $6.41, I can make a salad for the entire week! Hmmm, salad for a week, or a few dates? You decide.
