  • Wow, you need to give me your meal plan, lol. There are only three of us, one being my 9 month old, and we easily spend $100 a week...and my husband and I aren't even breakfast eaters. I must be doing something wrong, lol. We don't really have a budget, but that's about how much we spend, plus we eat out a few times a week either for lunch or dinner.

  • We're a family of 5 (2 adults, 4 yo DS, 3 yo DD, and 1 yo DD.) We eat all 3 meals, plus LO's have a few snacks, at home. We spend roughly $70. It would be more but my mom and my grandpa have a HUGE garden and so we get a lot of fresh veggies from them. We can almost fill up our deep-freeze from their garden, and it lasts us all year.

  • We don't really have a budget but we usually spend a little less than $100. We go grocery shopping every 1 1/2 week lol, we are only a family of 3 and my daughter is only 19 months so she doesn't eat a lot.
