    I am going to do mine a little different than some people.
    I am only going to put my budget at $200 for the month.
    I have a huge stockpile of food and will be using from it.
    I will post what we ate for the day and how much it cost. (if I remember the price if not I will estimate.) I want to see if I can stay in the $400 monthly food stamp total. ...
