  • Grocery budget is just that Dear...for groceries. That budget is for you to get the food supply needed to get you through until next time. now if at all possible you can squeeze one or two of those other necessities in then that is great.

  • Seperate. Food stamps only cover FOOD items- and while those items are essential to one's life, they re not covered by my grocery money.
