That's one thing I did like. Back when we were *really* extremely poor, my son was able to have a nice birthday cake on his birthday despite our really crappy financial situation. I didn't even have a pan I could have baked him a cake in, so it was nice to at least celebrate a little bit.
I used to work in a health food store. We took food stamps (though in that state it was a food debit card, not paper stamps). I was pleasantly surprised at the number of customers we had who used them. It's nice to know my tax money was going to help people by *healthy* food for themselves and their children and not junk.
ok, I went to the store the other day and bought $26 worth of stuff. Only one item, $2.19 wipes, were non food....I swiped my food stamps card (at the self check out) and it said I still owed $13. ???
The cashier I talked to the next day said it might have been the rotisserie chicken I bought from the deli.
