After this month, we will no longer qualify for food stamps! I finally found a job that I can work fulltime and help pay the bills. Not only will we not qualify for food stamps, but it will probably knock us off Medicaid and WIC for the kids! We'll probably still get state sponsored insurance(we pay a yearly premium and copays) for the kids, but other than that, we WILL TOTALLY BE OFF GOVERNMENT HELP!

Congratulations! That's wonderful! I don't think most of us hate people on foodstamps. We just don't like seeing people abuse the system , especially the ones who brag. I don't mind helping people who temporarily need help. I just don't think pa is meant as a lifestyle and I don't like people who use it as such.

So proud of you!  I am not a "foodstamp hating mama" but I am happy that you got fulltime work and are moving on up!  Go you!

YAY! that is awesome.

I am going to be back out looking for work after I recover from surgery on the 12th so I might be getting off food stamps too.  It'll be bittersweet no doubt, but it needs to be done.
