    Get stuff with a long shelf life. At this point you really need to look out for #1.

    60 bucks is 60 bucks. Use it to buy food you will eat and food that will keep.

    yeah - buy staple food with long shelf life. If you wanna 'spread the wealth' you could always slip a lil something to a street person or two, 'Happy Thanksgiving' sort of thing.

    I just braved the cold to deposit my paycheck (which is long since accounted for in its entirety) ... saw a homeless woman with a dog sitting on the cold concrete. I really wish I wasn't so broke right now.

    Well in that case, maybe you could just stock up on some energy bars and convenient snack type products. Did you decide where you are moving to?

    find a food pantry and ask them to meet you at the grocery store. Give them the card to buy what they want and then get them to drive you across town.

    If that food stamp card is not used, the money goes back into the system to be redistributed to others. So don't feel pressured to use it up if you cannot find a use for it.

    You realize that using food stamps dishonestly is like stealing from the government and us taxpayers? Bottom line, if you want dr. pepper, get your own money!

    But hey, before long we'll all be on food stamps, living on the great american plantation, where no one works and all are nourished by welfare, under the sovereign rule of Mr. president elect.

    and yes im exagerating for effect.

    best point so far. Why not grab good stuff that will keep and is easy to carry, and whatever funds you don't use won't really be wasted.

    yes they do.

    I live in a nation where I know people with depression who get disability. I have had to argue with people on my way to to work, after i had a seizure so i could get up out of the ditch and go to work.

    (different occasion)
    and leave the hospitial after the emt's lost my glasses and ride my bicycle to work after having a seizure,
    do not start with me, i have little sympathy. and i am a tax payer

    i have been the emergancy room 31 times this year. and have been left to lie in the ditch more times than that. thats why i would give it to a homeless person

    that's actually another great idea, if you can afford the postage. Flat rate is good assuming the box is big enough, cause food will weigh a lot. Priority mail would be high without the flat rate box.

    that's cool - I have a hard time finding them here, and the sizes I have seen are very small....again, a good option to consider and worth getting the boxes.

    AND! They bum money off of us EVERYTIME we get paid just because they can!
    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve
