  • We are pretty bad at getting our grocery costs down, I really need to get re-registered with "the grocery game". With that being said, family of 5 and between $200 - $250 per week.

  • I do not have a car so I shop monthly (and get a cab back). I spend about $200 a month for 2 adults...that boils down to $50 a week.

  • On avg. we spend about $200/wk to feed a family of 5. And that's looking for the bargains & cutting coupons!

  • we'll if I am able to get a ride to walmart or not. I live behind a grocery store but they are really expensive! If I go to walmart then I usually spend $300 for the whole month, if I go to the store that I live behind I spend at least $100 a week

  • oh and we are a family of 5, 2 adults a 2yr old 1yr old and 3week old (he's breastfed though)

    Answer by SabrenaLeigh at 7:31 AM on Oct. 1, 2010

  • we are a family of 5 (2 adults 3 kids ages 16,14,6) I spend about $150.00 per week but recently have been able to cut that by about $30 with coupons and sales. I have learned to stock up when you have coupons combined with sales and shop different stores for certain things like cereal store brand at the grocery store or wal-mart for name brands. Cereal is about a $1 or so less at wal-mart even toiletries are cheapers at wal-mart too.
