I've answered some of the "how much do you spend on groceries" questions on here. On some of them, people say they feed their family of 4 or 5 on like $200-$300 a month, and on some of them its opposite, its like $200 a week or more. Regardless of HOW you buy (FS, WIC, cash, or credit) how much does it cost you to feed your family (and how many are in your family?) per month. Do you cook at home a lot?
I have a family of 5 plus 2 cats. Kids get lunch at school when they are in school, and we cook at home every night of the week. DH and DD comes home to eat luch with me every day. Breakfast is at home also except for my oldest 2. Including household supplies, food, and pet supplies, our "grocery" bill runs about $600 a month when the kids are in school and $700 a month when they're not. I also clip coupons and save about $20 per trip, and plan meals and grocery lists ahead of time. Just like to compare to others.
