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!
I've tried but can never seem to stick to it.
Quoting i_lovedyoufirst: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.
Meal plan ans use coupons. We don't receive fs but we are a family of 4 and spend $400 a month.
FS are supposed to be a supplement, not your entire monthly food allowance!
Missouri and no.
Quoting tisaynababae:Where are you located? Are you buying formula with that?
hmmm we're a family of 7 and can do less than 600 bucks a month for food (our own money) Like the pp said plan meals look for sales things like that and coupon if you can as well
Try doing meals without meat 3 or 4 nights a week
we have a family of 3 and I get $55/mo.
