ive never used food stamps, but we qualified for a month for disaster relief due to gustav and ike.... i know they only cover food, obviously, but when i go shopping do i have to put the non food (toilet paper, dog food, etc) seperate, or does the computer seperate and just have me pay the balance?

The computer usually separates the items, but there is a scratch and dent store I go to that doesn't. I would think any store that doesn't separate will have a sign up. Also, keep track of your balance because a lot of stores need to know the balance if you don't have enough to cover all foods (ie if you're almost out of food stamp money but want to buy more than the amount on the card).

For food stamps yes, the register will seperate the items out and let you know if you owe anything else.

If you are on WIC then you have to seperate them out by coupon.

We were on Food Stamps earlier this year. This was the first time for us and were greatful for the help.
