One of the best ways to save money is to purchase whole chickens and cut them up on your own. Trust me, this isn't a task that I've been terribly excited about either but I recently took advantage of a buy one / get one free whole chicken sale at our local grocery store so I was forced to give it a try.
I found this wonderful video on You Tube that shows step-by-step how to successfully (and easily) cut up a whole chicken.
Check it out. You'll be thrilled when you see how much money you can save with a little chicken cutting know-how! =)
