Nope. We make too much now that we started getting disability for my oldest son. Same for food stamps. I was trying to figure it out without using any of "his" money so that can go towards other things for him. If that makes sense.
We were only on fs and wic a short time trying to get back on our feet but the minute his disability kicked in they took it all away, not that we got much anyways.

No bashing please. One child is in school.
I have the basics, cases of water, flour, sugar, seasonings, some canned/frozen veggies, some pastas and stuff. Probably enough random stuff to through together to get us by for a month anyways. Was just looking for some options, what others would do.
I just feel guilty using money that is for ds1 to feed the family.

Do you get Wic?

You can make big meals and freeze them so they don't go bad.

Bargain shop, hardcore. I usually don't get name brand stuff, unless I cannot stand the taste of offbrand. Check your local ads.
