They also gave like beans,rice, fruit,powdered eggs, gov cheese and canned meat BBQ pork and chicken....



Wic has a cut off age at 5 years old I think. You can get it while pregnant and until your kid is 5.

plantains is a quarter each, 2 1/2 dozen eggs at walmart is 6 dollars, bag of rice is 4 or 5 dollar. an 8 oz box of spaghetti is 88 cents. hot dogs is like 96 cents.

you aint gonna make 16 bucks stretch a month, but you can make it stretch. and im pretty sure she is referring to the tyson chicken nuggets you get at walmart not mcdonalds nuggets if that makes a difference.

This has been a staple of my diet for all of my life so I don't see it as being deprived. Gotta love an African-Islander diet. Just about any non-American diet will instantly cut food costs.

Two bags of rice $2

Two bags of dried beans $2

Two loaves of bread (better use one slice per sammy) $2

Two bags of spaghetti sticks $2

Two cans of Spaghetti sauce with meat $2

Two cans of Tuna $1

One pack of hot dogs $1

Two Jars of Peanut butter $2

One round of Bar S  balongna $1

One jar of Mayo $1

They could eat the breakfast and lunch at school if offered.

Forget the nuggets and drank some damn water while you're at it!








for 5 people, though?

You do a couple rinse cycles then wash then a rinse again.
Then put then out in the sun to sanitize and whiten.


baby poop is pretty bad
formula and table fed babies
Not breast fed babies

Even if they go too daycare pumping and freezing is an option.

Babies don't need table food for a long long time it's not even good for them
But pumps are super expensive...and you still have to buy storage bags/bottles...etc. If you can afford the upfront cost of a pump then yes, in the long run (if you breastfeed for at least 6 months exclusively) it does save money.

Baby poo is horrid... its not some lil nugget but a big ole loose pudding of death ughDead. My mom did clothes for myself and the sibs. I know she stopped with them when they were about 10 months.  Those clothes be flooding Dead.  And yo do start to wash more often and buy more store brought just becomes more convenient especially when out and about and trying to change  baby and clean the diaper be4 putting it back in ur bag. 

I like hand washing  but i use the dryer to dry most of the items. Im a fan of the washboard more so than the stick washer. In one of my many homes i imagine myself having the ole timey house will have one of these. My mom use to have one growing up.

i live alone. however i have 3 teenagers spending a few days with me and it sure as hell isn't easy feeding them! two of them are boys aka bottomless pits.  i cooked a big pot of spaghetti and meatballs yesterday, its  gone today. actually there wasn't enough of it for them to all eat some  today so i bought a cheap little caesars $5 pizza. i had one slice. its gone! i was about to bring them back home but i think they want to stay longer so i'm brainstorming on a meal i can cook that will actually last these hungry kids lol!

This is unfortunate for her, but its not the taxpayers responsibility to feed her kids. Nobody told her to have 4 kids out of wedlock on a low income.
