  • It's just me and my daughter, we spend about $120 every 2 wks on groceries. But I also buy food for my hubby and send it to him. But we average about $500 for the 3 of us (even tho his meals are "paid for" he still buys stuff for snacks and missions.

  • On groceries, about $250 a month. We are on a tight budget, and it's just two of us. We only buy what we really need. We splurge on take out on paydays!

  • Its about $175 every 2 weeks or so, for 4 people and 6 pets. I get a LOT of fresh veggies and they're expensive where I'm at. I'm working on bringing down the amount, though.

  • well for 3 people who eat real food, 1 on formula, 2 pets, and just regular household things (cleaning supplies, toiletries, etc) i spend about $300-$350 every 2 weeks. i get fresh veggies, and a lot of meats, b/c thats what the people here like. when my hubby is deployed it usually stays about the same b/c then i tend to buy more frozen meals that way i'm not cooking big meals for just me since my daughter is only 3 1/2 i'll buy frozen stuff and split it w/her.
