Do you have food stamps left over at the end of the month?

I did some grocery shopping today and spent $230.00. I still have about $400 left and will be getting more in about a week. Needless to say, I stocked up on meat, canned veggies, and some other items. Do you ever have money left over at the end of the month and do you stock up on certain items?

  • Sometimes I do, never very much, and it depends on how I shop. When I do have some leftover, I either stock up on things like canned goods or meat, or I save it to help if I get a short week where I need a little extra to cover everything I need.

  • I wish I had enough. I only get 85$ a month, and I'm lucky if it lasts a week.

  • We had almost $60 leftover from April to May. I use coupons excessively. My husband just got a better job (thank you GOD!!!!) so June will be our last month to get benefits I think . If we do get any it will go down a ton. I tried to use an online calculator that said we'd qualify for $38 but I dont know how accurate that is. I definitely plan on using as many coupons as possible to stock up so that when we dont have them anymore starting July we'll have something stocked up to help with the transition off them.

  • I'm not on FS, but I wish I had that kind of money left over at the end of the month. We're lucky if we have $5 to our name.
