Stretching the Dollar (50 words)


Diapers. Milk. Oatmeal. Dinner this week. Toilet paper. Gas for car.

Would $30 do? That’s all the money she and her four children had.

But she must.

$10 gas.

Oatmeal for breakfast and dinner.

Free lunch at school. No lunch money.

Buy diapers and TP.

Nothing leftover again this week.
