  • In a typical week, I spend about $100-130 for 5 people. In a special week, such as shopping for Thanksgiving or Christmas (like this last week), I spend more like $150-170.

  • I could probably do good on $50 a week or less for the 3 of us but we're only ever home for dinner during the week.

  • $150 for 7 people. I can do it for $100, we just eat meatless a couple nights and cut out the extras (like pre packaged snacks for the kids lunchboxes) but we can budget for $150 easily
