  • I average $250 a month for 4 adults, 1 teen boy, 2 tweens. That typically includes toilet paper and all groceries. Last month I spent under $100 and this month I only have around $60, but I've got all my meals planned and I should be able to do it.

  • Usually around $200 for 6 of us, maybe $300 some months. Not counting dog food, toiletries, etc - that would be another $10-50, depending on the month.

    And yes, that's per month, NOT week.

  • Good question. I think around 400 GBP. Not sure though. We usually do a two weeks shopping on the internet and we fill up the gaps from a little local grocery store. So I am not really sure. But I guess so:P

  • We are blessed to have a freezer full of meat. At the store each week I spend about $60 - $70.00's. We're a family of 5 (our 3 girls are 1, 3 and 5 yr.).
