Costco will accept food stamps- Smart Spending - MSN Money I feel the SAME way this person feels... Food stamps are all well & good. However, even my daughter is guilty of not caring whether she bargain shops or not. She just throws into her basket. Why? She's not footing the bill. I cannot go w/her to the grocery store because of the vicious arguments we've gotten into over this. I can't help but think how my husband & I are struggling to pay our bills & groceries, etc., & there she is buying pre-made sandwiches, frozen dinners, etc. Things I'd like to buy but CANNOT AFFORD! I have a COSTCO card but rarely shop there because I call it the "$250 store". Every box you put in your cart is $10 or more.
