I am so used to feeding my family on $40 a week (for my family of 4) I have no idea what to buy! All we have been eating is veggies, rice and beans with a little meat here and there. I have been making my own bread and muffins... How do I get back into spending a 'normal' amount with out going 'crazy' and wasting it. I am a little worried I might. It's odd having this much money for food.Answer Question

How in the world do people get that much in foodstamps? It's astounding!

When my husband was hurt at work and worker's comp was not paying (we had no income for several months), we only qualified for $320/month in foodstamps for our family of 4. States must be different in the way they give out their foodstamps. Not saying y'all are doing anything wrong; clearly the state is out of control in how they dispense their benefits.

610/month is NOT a lot... not here any ways. It's pretty good though. I'm spending 480-550/month and it's killing our budget... but we can't eat any less then that - it's already the bare minimum ;o(
