On average- how much do you spend a week on groceries?

I feel like we're breaking the bank every time we go to the grocery store. We have a family of six. Our four kids are 6,4,3, & 19 mos. We have two in diapers (same size), and my six year old and hubby both pack their lunches almost every day. We spend anywhere from $130-$140 each week on groceries. How much do you usually spend?

  • We spend about 125 for a family of 5. It sounds like what you spend is very reasonable.

  • about 50-60 per week for me, DD & BF. Thats just groceries though. I have a totally separate budget for other needs like diapers & such.

  • Those who manage under $100 per week, is this just food you are talking? I include bath needs and baby needs in my weekly bill too.
