Americans... $350 a week?  Another family- ~$ 150 a week.

New Yorkers get about $26 dollars per person per week in foodstamps.

We spend about $75 for 3 (tight budget)

How much do you spend a week?

That's really good brother nuh.  Are those canadian dollars?

We spend like $50.00 a week for our wee family of 2.  And that's in one of the only countries in the world that has been protected from massive inflation. 

Maybe we eat too much.

JustOne: Yes that's in Canadian dollars.

Everyone else: To give everyone a benchmark -- Canadian dollars are trading on par with the USD now.

Ma'as salaama,
