I was just reading the post about" how much is your income and how much do you get in FS" and it really pissed me off because I don't qualify for FS...not by a lot!!! And after all the monthly bills are paid, we have VERY little to spend for food. I just don't understand. I make $19.25 an hour which is $3080 BEFORE taxes. Health insurance is $432 a month. Rent is $1200 a month. Electric is about $250 a month average (more in the summer, less in the winter) cable/internet is $130. Phones are $100. Gas to get to work is about $300. Car payment is $300. Car insurance is $150. Do the math...for a family of 5, that leaves less than $100 a week for food. With NOTHING left over. Are you kidfing me? I see all these people getting $5-600 a month for food? And I'm scraping the bottom of the peanut butter jar for my kids every month?!? Maybe I should quit my job.
