3. Write a summary of the month. What did you buy? Did you get an apartment? What did you eat? What did you buy? How was the quality of life during that month?

This month was a pretty ok one. I bought things such as food from Dollar Tree, Hannaford and Dollar General. I was able to buy enough food that would last my family for the month and still have an adequate amount of money left for more food, if need be. I was also able to purchase an apartment for eight hundred dollars a month. This apartment came with 4 bedrooms and 1 bathroom, it’s not as close to the town as I would have liked, but its livable for my family. The families diet is a pretty well rounded diet to a degree, we were unable to buy the organic food because it was a bit pricey. I had to buy cheaper quality foods from Dollar Tree. I purchased rice, chips, water, juice, and seasoning there. Raw meat had to be purchased elsewhere because Dollar Tree does not sell raw meat. I purchase ground turkey and chicken thighs because they were the most affordable options. The quality of life this month wasn’t as rough; I use transportation only for emergency situations because I have only a set amount. Clothes were free for the children through the FSA program and my husband and I purchased clothes from the salvation army with our budget of ten dollars. This quality of life was not ideal, but it was manageable.
