No buyer’s club and only 2 digital coupons!
The prices you see on this table are no longer available. I have found even better deals since taking this picture. Other sales or coupons are long gone.
At worst, I would have to pay about $3.75 for this table full of food, based on what sales, BOGOs, manager’s specials, discounts and coupons are available.
The point is, it’s easy to eat like this for roughly $4 if you smart-shop.
The SNAP Challenge is not realistic
With the SNAP Challenge, you are supposed to buy food for one week on your food stamp budget. That doesn’t make sense. People on food stamps don’t receive their benefits for only one week.
Therefore, they should be buying in bulk – even if that means just buying six boxes of pasta to get them for 49¢ per box instead of $1.25 per box. If you guy a jar of instant tea, that’s going to last you for a month. What single person eats an entire loaf of bread per week?
