  • When dd was little we spent $300 on groc including diapers, $50 for dds other needs and formula was free through WIC! Now that she's 2, we spend $400 on food and only get other things as needed. These other things are really only clothes... Maybe a book or toy here and there

  • We are a family of 4 and we have a budget of $350/month for all groceries, toiletries, paper products and meals out. All that is included in the $350. We don't eat out often (obviously) but if we do it comes out of the grocery money. Diapers and wipes were included in that when the kids were babies too. There are often great sales and coupon match-ups for them making diapers and wipes dirt cheap.

  • $350 a month on groceries and diapers. We're a family of three and I can't believe we spend so much. It just seems like grocery prices keep going up and up and up so I keep having to raise our budget.

    Such is life right?
