You cannot buy electronics with food stamps. You cannot buy cigarettes with food stamps. You cannot buy pet food with food stamps. You cannot withdraw money with an EBT card (food stamps).
Do you know what else you can’t buy with food stamps? Shampoo, soap, laundry detergent, toilet paper, paper towels, tissues, tinfoil, plastic sandwich bags, toothpaste, cleaning products, tampons, pads, over the counter medications (such as Tylenol, Ibuprofen, etc.), and anything else you can think of that you cannot physically ingest for nutritional purposes.
Do you know what you can buy with food stamps? Food.
Do you know what it’s like to scrounge for change to buy non-edible necessities, use a credit card and EBT card (food stamps) during the same transaction, and then have the person in line behind you judge you for buying the ingredients to make a birthday cake?
People who disseminate false information about food stamps have never had to use food stamps.
I was on food stamps for 3 years and I can verify that what tumblr user througthewildblue says is the truth.
There are even certain foods that you cannot buy with food stamps! Stuff from the deli at the grocery store is like a 50/50 hit or miss.
So like, honestly, you can only buy SOME food with food stamps, and nothing else.
This is so important for everyone to know as soon as humanly possible.
Bird Date #6.5
This was taken Saturday morning. He was just hanging out enjoying the sunshine. She was minding the nest, of course.
Bird Date #7
Monday evening: If you look closely, you can see both of them.
Since it was about 6:30pm and rather cold they decided on a quiet evening at home.
(Wonder what they had for dinner.)
DERP DERP DERP!
Take a closer look at this exclusive April clone derp production art, straight from the Nickelodeon Animation Studio!
April Derp on TMNT was the most ridiculous moment in the show yet. It actually runs around saying “derp derp derp!” WHAT THE HELL.
For those wondering what’s up, check out the Season 2 episode “The Kraang Conspiracy”.
As far as the episode went, the plot seemed rushed. It all felt too good to be true. But hey, it was fun. I’m with this guy.
Hey guys, the She Makes Comics kickstarter has 6 days to go and it’s not fully funded yet! This is an awesome, incredibly worthwhile project that I know a lot of you care about, so spread the word.I’ll be so sad if this doesn’t get made! Spare a dollar?
How I became “That Antisocial Girl” in my weekend letterpress class.
Comics are beautiful and intricate stories and artwork that you can HAVE so EASILY for way less than they’re worth, and if you’re going to steal them anyway, please just don’t talk to me about it or call yourself “into” them thanks.
(This guy was a “designer,” too. No excuse.)
But letterpress is really fun.
Ugh. A designer?
SO I asked my friend Rob to paint me like one of his french girls.
Obviously this is just a sketch but I wanted to share it because I’m out of my wits excited to see the finished product. Plus, I wanted to encourage all of you to follow him on tumblr, and maybe consider emailing him about buying some existing art, or commissioning him yourself.(seriously, he sells prints for like… $10.) He was able to do this off of facebook / instagram photos. It isn’t like I had to provocatively pose in front of him or anything.
*Because I am the crazy feminist I am and immediately skeptical of any man.. but his art is beautiful and doesn’t make my skin crawl.
