  • that sucks you know ppl are going to ask you why you are screaming again right?? I guess try to budget more, coupons, buy cheaper things to Canada we don't really have that system I think when you are on welfare thats it you get what you get I don't think there is extra for food....hang in there....

  • Dancer I am very sorry, honestly. I know the difference having that card can make in our life. I do hope the best for you and your family.

  • Didn't you already know this was going to happen from your previous post?

    Sounds like you need to work on a budgeting plan.

  • we were 15.00 a month over (who can buy groceries with 15 bucks?)
    Sorry momma, just gotta cut a few more corners as hard as it is already. Maybe do some side jobs for now ( babysitting etc) I know you both work and Im not sure of days etc. I babysit on weekends during the school year to bring in a little extra, dont want to do evenings on school nghts because it messes up our LO's routine.

    Hugs, things will work out. Do you go to food banks?

  • I am confused I thought you knew this. He has a job that is paying more that should be a cause for rejoicing not shouting.

  • Thanks meooma-All I know is that before the card I sacrificed so much that I dropped weight like crazy,not that i was trying! I was making sure my family had enough to eat! sarasmommy777-I am yelling! I am mad! I know people who have been on the link for 10 years and live with the boyfriend/babys daddy andthe welfare people thinks it is just mom and the kid(s)! You are honest and you get screwed! U lie and you get it all!!!!! sucks!!!!

  • I'm sorry. What state do you live in? Some states, like Texas, has Commodities. They have helped us out before when we were in a jam.
