IMO If you qualify for FS, you should be on it. I don't care what year your current car is or if you have internet or not, the income limits for FS is low enough that if that is what you are making, you should be on them. I'm happy to know my tax money is going to help out families that are struggling.
And please don't get rid of your pets as other posters are suggesting!!! Pets are family too. We went through a rough patch once when I was considering getting rid of our animals, hubby said absolutely not under any circumstances and now that we are doing well I would never have been able to get over/forgive myself for getting rid of my pets.
