Neil Dubovsky: Food stamp challenge – healthy options a luxury
Yesterday was the first day of our food stamp challenge, so we used the weekend to finalize our preparations. We created a list in which we calculated the number of meals we thought we would need for the week and the anticipated cost. Fortunately, we were able to buy everything for $70, about $5 under our allotted budget. That gives us a $20-$25 budget “cushion” in the event our initial food purchase does not last the entire week.
