I go overboard about any and all deserts. If I were on food stamps I would not go overboard and being able to splurge on my family (and my hobby) would be a huge motivator.

It matters as some of those cakes are ridiculously expensive and a luxury. When you buy the stuff to make yourself your dollars go much further.

It's much easier to splurge and buy expensive things when you don't have to work for it!

:!: I'm currently living with my parents since my ex just up and left me to raise 2 kids by myself.. And my mother uses my food stamps card to supplement the food costs, which is fine by me. But she decided to order separate cakes for my sister and my aunt even though we were having ONE party.. And spent like $70-$80 of foodstamps on cake! (I found this out later after I got my card back). I was lividddddddd.

Yup. If she was limited on time she could have bought 2 boxes of Betty Crocker and the frosting and had 2 decorated cakes for $10-15.

It's not easy! I am very close with my family and I moved when my first child was a week old :( but we moved so we could provide a better life for our children. I'm from the Bay Area and living costs so much there!! I am very happy to say that we are in a much better situation now and will be moving back next year :)

That's awesome! I'm originally from Cali also and would loooove to go back but it's soo expensive. I've got to look into a few more things to make certain that the cost of living is truly cheaper, but I think I'm gonna do it. My kids are 6 years old and 7 months old.
