Is this a typical month? If so, you should apply for aid. Check to see if there are food pantries in your area. That being said, I would stick with dishes that use beans as the main protein. It's much cheaper than meat. Veggies are pretty cheap in my area so I would stock up on them. If this is a temporary situation, you can get stuff like ramen noodles, etc. This wouldn't be a healthy decision if it is a long term issue.

 I always get a kick out of people who say "rice and beans".  Who eats that?  I eat rice when I order chinese food and the only bean I eat are refried at the mexican restaurant.  I would starve to death if this is all there was.

Ramen noodles? O.o

Does Safeway have another name that you know of? We don't have one of those here.

I wonder if that is the same or similar to an Ultra? 

Quoting Anonymous:

At my local Safeway, they have frozen juice sales where you get two for 99 cents. It's generic stuff but it's just as good as Welch's, and lightyears ahead of Koolaid...

Quoting VeggieRunnerMom:

Where can you find juice for 49cents? I want to shop there!!

Quoting Anonymous:

Personally, I'd prefer water over koolaid. That shit is disgusting. And kids don't need juice. And if they do want juice, a frozen can of orange juice (no need to add anything but water) is 49 cents.
