Ladies who are good at grocery shopping...FS question
I am not looking for criticism here. I am looking for advice. We recently fell on hard times and had to resort to applying for and being approved for food stamps. I have always been ok at grocery shopping and we cook good meals for our 2 children every night with the exception of an occasional pizza or chinese food order.
My question is would it be smarter to buy mostly meat with our FS since that is what is the most expensive and then when we run out of money, we only have to buy sides and stuff to go with it? Or, should we just go grocery shopping like normal and buy what we need for dinners until they run out and then have to buy full meals with our own cash.
PS...we both have always worked and could afford our children and our bills before now. So no bashing please! We would like to be off of assistance within 6 months...hopefully my husband can find another job soon. He just got laid off :(
