Thought I would put my self to a personal challenge. Here in the United States they have a program called (S.N.A.P) or at one time known as food stamps which help the low income purchase food.
For the month of January Murphy and I are going to buy our food as if we were getting the full benefit of two people which is $367 dollars.
This is the amount which the government figures that we should be feeding our self with.
Out of this $367 I can't purchase such things as toilet paper, tooth paste, medication, deli foods, bakery foods, alcohol or cigarettes. But snap one can purchases candy, soda pop, tv dinner if you don't use the store microwave...yes one can buy fresh food.
At the end of this blog post they will be some links on info on snap and a for money exchange for those who live outside of the United States.
Question time... can one or a family eat nutritional on the snap program or not.
Is anyone else to take on a snap challenge.
I don't know how many of you heard about Carla of “half dozen daily” challenge. It a -decluttering-nolow-spend-challenge
One thing I'll say there having prizes....One can see I made a link just above.
I'm using my snap challenge for my no/low spend challenge.
Then for my declutter challenge...It not a big one but it needs to be done...it has 3 parts to it....clean off the coffee table and the two end tables.
In this I'm also including organizing and taking care of the items,,,not just sticking them under the bed...you know out of site out of mind...none of that.
I know it a small under taking Confession time....I want to get back out to the shed/barn and start back on that project....There to much snow on ground to get out there.
The first of January I'll post some picture
Coffee is on.
