  • Family of 7. I try to stay at $150, but occasionally go up to 200/week. I plan my meals around what is on sale that week, but I don't do coupons at all - which I should!

  • We're a family of 4, and I've never really kept track. I usually go to the grocery store once a week and Costco or Sam's a few times a month, and I buy paper products and laundry soap and whatever at the same time as our food. Some weeks, it's just a few things here and there like produce, and some days it's more major shopping trips. I just spent $382 at Costco yesterday.
