How much do you usually spend on groceries? How big is your family?

We are a family of 6 and only spend about $500/month. We always use coupons and buy generic when no coupon is available.

  • We spend too much. We are a family of 5 plus I take care of three other kids. We probably spend about $700 and I think that's too much.
