  • About $175 a week. I usually spend around $140 on the main stuff & the rest mid week etc when I forget things I might need or run out of things.

  • We go once a week for main things and spend anywhere from $100-150 average, Id say.

  • Around once a week, and it's usually around $100. My goodness- how am I going to get down to $200 a month?

  • Once a week. If I buy JUST groceries (I shop wal-mart, so I tend to pick up other things not actually considered "groceries), it runs about $200/wk. We are a family of 6 with lots of pets.

  • I shop every Friday, and I spend usually between $60-$100 each week. Sometimes I spend more than $100, but very rarely, and usually only if I am making something brand new that I've never made and therefore have to buy a lot of things for.

  • We buy groceries once every 2 weeks on his payday. We spend around $200. It's only the two of us. I know that sounds like a lot. We buy expensive meat. The cheap stuff is tough my DH says.

  • About $100-$150 a week. But formula is around $30. Sometimes a little over because shopping at Super Walmart you tend to buy everything you really don't need!!
