This is a serious post and you can bash I am ok with that I know I will because I get fs but I get WAY to much like can I call them and tell them I do not need that much?
Here is the thing my SO works full time right now he makes enough for us to pay rent, cable, Internet (which I NEED for college online) car payment, insurance and his cell phone and our other toiletries (which we buy as cheap as we can) and our electric as well plus so SO can build credit so we can be approved for his VA loan he had to get a credit card.
So now that you know all that after words I get 300 a month for child support which I also help with bills it goes right into our checking account but I take my twins every weekend to do something fun when they have been good and if we have left over I put it in their piggy bank.
I get 591 dollars in fs a month and right now because each month it rolls over I have like 1200 on my card. I do not let anyone use it and never sell them for money that is even worse. But I just think it is so so much and As bad as I would feel to take away treating my twins to doing fun things each week with THEIR money I am thinking of just dropping food stamps and using the c/s for groceries.
Like I said I am a full time mom and college student and SO asked that I just be with the boys and finish out school because yes they go to prek but they only go for 2.5 hours 4 days a week. I was still considering going to work once they start kindergarten next year that way I would not need to have them in daycare.
What do you guys suggest I do?
