  • This really depends on where you are at. With that being said once a week I spend about $60 for 4 people. That includes buying all toiletries and cat and dog food too.

  • Prices have gone up recently i noticed. I made a quick stop for just a few things forgot my Q's and spent $40.

    Typically i spend between $60-$100 it depends on if i need meat or not, i buy tons of fresh produce weekly, and I use alot of coupons and shop sales. I dont make a list and shop weekly i scan sale ads match to cupons and stockpile when we run out normally that item is back on sale again.

    We have a family of 5

  • Every week and a half to two weeks I spend about $120 for our family of 5 (though I have a 4 year old, 3 year old, and 8 month old.) I'm really big into rolling dinners (a whole chicken one night and chicken pizza the next night with the leftovers from the first). We almost always have left overs

  • You guys have GOT to give me your recipes so I can make my food last longer. My dh eats like a friggin garbage disposal so we can easily spend anywhere from $125-$150 a week for three people and it still doesn't last the entire week. And that with us eating out roughly once to twice a week and buying additional milk, bread, juice, etc... before the next grocery day.

  • 3 ring do you do it? we spend 40 on produce alone, another 40 on meat, probably 20 on bread and eggs, then there is everything else! we spend about 200/ week, but that does include diapers for twins too. we have a family of 6.
    and hypermamaz, my dh is starving too!
