How much money do you spend weekly on groceries?

Between DH and I (DD is breastfed so shes not eating yet) we spend about $160 a week on groceries. That includes DD's diapers and I eat fairly healthy and buy a lot of fresh produce and also 1 lb of salmon every week. I am trying to figure out if our diet is above average as far as expense goes.

  • $170/week for 3. You spend more if you buy things fresh but that's the best way to get all the nutrients from it.

  • There's 4 of us, I'm still buying diapers, wipes and pull ups, but no formula. I spend on average $200 per week. I don't buy red meat or fish very often...I do buy TONS of fresh fruit and veggies.

  • I spent this past week on groceries like 58$ for a family of four.. That is the cheapest i have spent in the past few months.. I trying to save money for bills, etc.. Next two weeks when i buy groceries again, i might need more and spend more.. .Again just buying what i need, not too much extra this or that..

  • So far I have spent $48 this week. But that was to get a few things that were on sale. I have 2 freezers and a pantry that are full (thanks to my tax refund) so all I'm doing now is buying produce and I only buy what's on sale.
