  • Well we purchased a whole pig (processed, wrapped, etc) for $300 - so that takes care of our main meats for a year. I spent $130 at Sams the other day (my 1x month go) and 85$ at the grocery. I will have to go back in 2 weeks for milk and possibly eggs. I have a family of 4 for our regular meals.....I'm not a big name brand shopper so that helps out alot....and I am not afraid of the "clearance cart" :)

  • I need to "pick up a few things" at the market yesterday which turned into $100. I had just spent over $100 last Sunday. So it looks like we spend about $100/week to support our family of five.

  • between $80-150/wk. depends on how much i'm cooking/what i'm cooking, and whether we're completely out of cleaners/non-food items.

  • I can't really give a good #........ we might spend $50 on a "meal" but it turns into 4 dinners and 3-5 lunches. I buy name brand detergent, though, and it's VERY expensive these days. Also my son needs a meal and a snack sent to school each day and I have an addiction to those wet Lysol wipes..... I'd say on avg a week we maybe spend $200ish.... sometimes less. Sometimes lots more. Family of 4 +1 cat
