  • I have 6 and spend $100-$500 - so for 3 I'd hope I could keep it under $300/month.

  • When we were a family of three, our budget was for $400 a month including toilet paper, diapers, wipes, pet food and cleaning products.
    And as I recall, that took some doing to achieve in tems of shopping sales, clipping coupons and cooking creatively.

  • When it's hubby and I and our 19yo college son we spend about $500 a month just on food. When it's just hubby and I we spend about $400 a month just on food.
