    a gallon of milk for a 12 pack of toilet paper in the past. I believe that was WIC milk though, when my son was allergic to it but they didn't yet have an allowance for soy milk (soy formula yes, soy milk no). They still gave me 4 gallons of milk a month and there was no way that I was drinking that much on my own. And I needed the TP.
    People often do the same thing with food stamps. You trade a little food for a ride to the grocery store so you can get your dairy home without it spoiling, or you trade food for cleaning supplies, or toiletries. This is what you do to get by when you're desperate.
