I will never stop receiving Food Stamps

I am a mom of 2, and me and my husband have been married for 6 years. He works as a cook at a fast food restaurant close to our home. Even with his full time income we receive over half of what is alloted for a family of 4.



My mother took me shopping the other day. I just grabbed what I wanted, but I had to put a lot back at the register. I realized that we wont be able to spend cash on food, at this rate and to try would be wasting my husbands hard earned dollars.



I think I will just remain comfortable with what we have, and hope to work for my brother in law at his restaurant. He wouldn't require that I get on his payroll so that will save us from having to report it. I know its wrong but every single penny counts.

I never understood how much food costs until I used cash. We just can't afford it, and I don't want to ever not have enough.
