  • Too much. I spend about $100 (but that includes all groceries, paper towels and cat food an whatnot), for me and Peapod. Too much, too much...

  • Family of 5. About $250 a week. That said, we buy a lot of organic and my son has food allergies, so he needs some specialized foods. We cook from scratch and eat vegetarian 6 days a week. And this includes all household needs like laundry detergent, hygiene products, and bath tissue.

  • I spend between 60 and 75 a week, my spending limit for two weeks is 150, but a lot of time I spend less. Thats for a family of 4, and it includes all toiletries and such.

  • we're a family of 5, low income. i struggle to keep our grocery bill at 100 or less a week. but it's impossible sometimes, especially since we have two in diapers still. on food itself we probably spend about 100 a week on a good week, but that doesn't include all the paper products, hygenial stuff, etc.

  • I spend about $50-$60 on an average week for a family of 4.

    Some weeks it's a bit more, some it's less. Because I had things stocked up I spend $32 this week

  • Mom2Jack04 That's incredible!! I price match and make my menus deping on what is on sale and still spend too much. We do have 3 kids going through puberty (eating us out of house and home) and my DH is a HUGE eater.
