  • Usually our biweekly is roughly $220. For 3, including me.. and once a month, for our 2 dogs. xD!
    So, of course the staples, potatoes, meats (beef, pork, chicken, lamb) fish, canned stuff (soups, veggies, fruits, tomato sauce, etc)... then we usually buy fresh veggies, fruits, snacks, milk, juice, Monster energy drink for the hubby and his work (it's like coffee to him..) pasta...bread, uhmm.... that's really about it. Sometimes some extras. Most we get at costco, so it lasts a while, so we replenish, but that's really about it.

  • Just last night we stocked up our kitchen and it ran us a little over $100.That's for 2 adults and 3 children. By the end of the week we'll be back at the grocery store so on average we probably spend almost $100 a week.

  • We try to keep it to around 120 and under but usually it's over; so I guess if you mulitply that by four then it comes out to be 480 but I'd say more like 500. Oh, and we're a family of 4 - me, the hubbs, DD 11 and DD 4 living here in Maryland.

  • Right now its just me and my husband our son is only a month old and we get food and formula from wic but we only spend 200 a month if that. But it depends on what i make for dinner. I like to make 3-4 course meals so when i do that it cost us more
