How many people buy supermarket chicken and meat?

Despite the constant messages in the food press that we should all be eating free range, grass fed, organic, etc., I have to feed up to four people a week on just my salary. I don't have a lot of time to shop in a lot of different places either. So a few times a week I feed my family chicken that I buy on sale for 69 cents a lb. at the supermarket, Trader Joe's hamburgers or frozen shrimp probably from Thailand. Am I slowly killing us all? Do other people feel this constant pressure to buy hyper-expensive meat and poultry, or do some of you also buy regular meat and poultry at the regular supermarket? I even eat farm raised salmon every now and then. We eat virtually no processed foods and never any fast food, but the cost of the real quality meat is cost-prohibitive. Will I go to foodie hell?
