  • We are a family of 5 & I spend on avg. about $200/wk. That's w/ bargain shopping & cutting coupons. We may eat out or get take out about 1-2 times weekly. (So add about another $50/wk for that) If I could get a cow that squirted out 2% on 1 side & skim on the other, it'd be cheaper for us to own the cow! (we go thru about 8 gals/milk/wkly)

  • 2 adults, 1 teenager and 2 kids. I spend about $400/month. I have learned to shop well and not buy any premade items. I also don't buy any extra junk. If my husband shopped we'd probably spend about $1,000/month so he is banned from the market.

  • family of four around $150-200 every 2 weeks. And that includes things like toilet paper, paper towles, kitchen and bathroom cleaner because i shop at the super walmart and get it all in one big swoop. So on the $200 weeks is the times i'll have to get items like that.
