  • I spend around $150-$175 every week including diapers for two kids full time and a third in diapers at night time, and formula. Also we get treats from the store so we are less likely to want to go out to eat or go get a treat. I figure it's easier to budget for that way. I imagine our bill is going to go up soon as our youngest is about to go off formula but eat more table foods, and we are adding another baby in April so our family has me and my husband and 4 kids under four (well in april we will)

  • i buy groceries once ever 2 weeks (every paycheck) & its usually $100-$150. unless im buying large things like a water tap filter or diapers in bulk then its around $200. so per week it rounds out to $75

  • I go every payday (1st and 15th) I usually spend around $250 but if hubby is in the field I don't spend nearly as much.

  • For our family of 5 we spend about $130 - $160 a week, and that includes diapers. When the baby was still on formula and my 2 yo in pull ups, we'd easily spend $200 a week.

  • for a family of 5 I spend up to $90 per week. $100 if there is a holiday or b-day that week.
