So... I just heard someone say they should apply for food stamps just for the month of December so they could use the FS to buy gifts for people.


What?!?!?

How? Unless they plan to sell the card. You can only buy food with it.

Nope, she wants to buy gifts that are food. Like popcorn tins and candy sets, etc. And sell what is left for cash...

Some people sell their food stamp money.
like letting someone use $400 food stamp money for $200 cash.
Stupid, but people do it.

Save it for the families that need it!
I'm so SICK and tired of hearing " the government is not your baby daddy"
Well things happen! people loose their jobs! would you rather their children starve!? You don't need to make people feel worse than they already do about borrowing money from the government!

but to sell your FS money for money for gifts? get out of here!
Who knew that Christmas was just about gifts.

The thing is they aren't borrowing it cause they don't have to pay it back its free money. And yes some people truly need the help. But there are way to many out there that use it too long, inappropriatelly, or who isn't even trying to better them self so they don't need them anymore.
