i ask because we just had MIL come over and help us figure out a monthly budget. unfortunately DH is a momma's boy & thinks we need his mom's help in figuring out a budget. we have 3 daughters (2 of which are in diapers) and he makes roughly $1700/month, although its been less lately because he's been missing a few days of work here & there for his PTSD therapy sessions.
anyway, i printed out our entire spending history from January 1st, 2011 and did the math of what we spent on bills, food and other things. adding up what i spent at the store in January, it was like $286 and some change. In february it came in at even less around $265 or something. so when i came up with these figures.. i was feeling pretty damn good about myself. however you should've heard the shit she gave me about it.
"YOU SPENT $286 IN GROCERIES IN A MONTH!? *GASP*"
im like WTF do you expect we are a family of FIVE! my parents spend about that much on just themselves every 2 weeks!
i am curious.. ballpark.. what do you think is average grocery spending for a family of 5, with 2 in diapers?
