Great job! I would buy a bottle of canola oil instead of margarine. Still not the best oil, but cleaner than margarine.

Carson Vanderherp says:

Hey love bug! I need some help. I have a family of 4 and I’m vegetarian and they eat meat. I work in the coal mine and a lot of the times have to eat my food cold. We are on a budget but I’m so lost on how to do this. Lol

I wish canada had your prices for food!

Sammy Terranova says:

Thank you I loved this. I am only one person and try to spend about $40 per month. So this was great info. The best part was when you said you didn't have to steal sweetner packets because you got Truvia for free. Great tips. I am trying to do a whole plant based diet for weight loss. So thanks for this.

Now tho they allow you to buy prepared food ..years ago you couldn't do that waste of money to me instead of buying a cooked chicken for 7.99 you can. buy a family pack of chicken and separate in freezer bags!! To me that's wasteful but who am I to judge.also on the cash side they go to atm take some cash… buy beer !! Yes I said beer running a store wasn't easy it was a IGA store small mom and pops! Knowing what I know and saw they are not frugal they should have a class on how to spend the money by no way shape or form am I knocking anyone on the program..

Moments formoms says:

Not sure if this was said already but margarine isn’t vegan. There are vegan butters and with sales/coupons could probably get a tub for $1-$2 maybe even less or free with rebates. I also use apps like receipthog and fetch for rewards back on my receipts. Also doing other rewards on apps and online help earn gift cards that I use for various items.

Disabled and Prepping says:

Brenda Cowell says:

Margine is awful for you. It was first invented to faten up fowl and other animals. If you put it outside in the open. You will see no bugs are attacked to it.

Brenda Cowell says:

On average grocery stores throw out 6 to 7 carts full of groceries every week. I worked at an A& P store . We threw away a lot . It's terrible

We have a program in Maine that at specific Farmers Markets for every $1 spent using Food Stamps the person will receive a $1 in Harvest Food Bucks to use that same day @ the market- great deal –
However, you have the issue of:
a) knowledge of the farmer market program,
b) knowledge how to use the produce and not let it spoil,
c) transportation to the farmer's​ market,
d) knowledge of basic nutrition – bake kale chips and not purchase potato chips,
e) desire to learn new skills – cooking, nutrition, wise buying and wise use of food stamps
To accomplish this we need a different mindset for those offering food stamps and those using them But, I think it can be done
