These foodstamps just aren't cutting it!

We are a family of six and are receiving $672 a month in foodstamps. While that may seem like a lot to some of you, food is more expensive now and I can't get the foodstamps to last the whole month. I need some tips please!

    Do you meal plan?
    My friend who has a family of 8 gets 1,000. & she still manages to have enough to buy food to cook & make for people who can't afford it.

     FS are supposed to be a supplement, not your entire monthly food allowance!
