$23.47 per week, per person

You know it's bad when your watching a report on CBS Evening News about the food stamp program and how it is becoming nearly impossible for people to get by with the allotted amount of money they receive-- and the amount pretty much matches your own grocery budget.

Thankfully, for us, this is by choice so we can save for other things. But I did feel a little dramatic about it as I was watching CBS' report and learned this fact.

Sadly, We are on the food stamp program and when we found out how much we were eligable for every month we were very excited because it was over double what our allotted grocery budget had been. However it does go very quickly and somehow we always manage to spend it before the end of the month.
