So many people have been asking us how we can do our food shopping for a little over $100 for a family of four. I explain to them that it takes a bit of effort and a little restraint but you can do it. In June of 2012, we decided to challenge ourselves and food shop as if we were following the food stamp budget. Here, in New Jersey, the funds given to one person for one month is $133.26. This comes to $33.32 per person per week. Now we were scared at first because we had no idea how we were going to do this; but again, after some effort, we were able to do it and you can too!
