Stretching Stamps

Yes, ahole, you got it all correct except the part about mom's basement. I'm surprised the caretakers in your institution trust you with a keyboard. You can probably get on food stamps immediately if they ever let you out. BTW, don't be angry at me just because your whole family gets government freebees.

It would be difficult to expand the food stamp program (officially the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP) much further.

Between 2008 and 2010, the number of able-bodied people getting food stamps doubled, after the Obama administration lifted work requirements. One in seven Americans is on food stamps, which cost the federal government some $84.6 billion in 2011. One way to help SNAP recipients without spending more would be to teach them to stretch their dollars.

That’s where Stephanie Nelson, The Coupon Mom, comes in. She started her business years ago as a way to help others save money...
