EDIT 2: So I had a interview last week and started a new job yesterday!! I am the newest pre-k teacher at a small private school:) I will speak with my case work and update my financial status within the allotted time required. I'm so excited to have a full time job! Thank you everyone that was supportive.

I have to get back to work. I will try to answer questions later tonight.


EDIT: thanks everyone who was actually helpful. I am no longer replying to those bashing me because I have better things to do.


So I applied for FS for the first time. I'm recently single and need a little extra help while I get on my feet.

I will be getting $376/month and need help shopping a planing meals. I just got a Sam's card so maybe I can save an buy in bulk.

The money's for me and my son. What do you suggest I buy and make? I'm not very talented in the cooking department so I need all the help I can get.

Edit: I actually get $347. Pics are on pg 6&7.

Cook...limit snacks and premade boxed crap. Buy meats, veggies, fruit, eggs, oatmeal, etc. It'll helo stretch your budget.

Well if you must know I just got my sister's second card for free because I know it's cheaper to buy in bulk.

I live in Texas and that's what I was approved for.

So glad I'm anon.

You can get a meat order to take care of the protein. I got a meat order last month and I still have tons of meat left. I got a $100 meat order. If you have a sams card, I would buy in bulk. :-)
