  • about 150 each week for three of us. Some people say it's a lot....but i like to cook yummy food & ingredients are expensive. We rarely have any processed foods, i make just about everything from scratch including our bread.

  • We spend between $120-200 a week. It depends on what sales are going on and whether or not we are restocking stuff. Usually if we spend a lot one week, the next week won't be nearly as much.
    We have a family of four.

  • I have two babies so we have diapers and formula to buy. I usually spend about $150-175 per week. I also have 3 stepkids over every other weekend so when they come, the food bill goes up to about $200-225 per week.

  • Ack, that's per month, not per week. Some months I spend only $100, some up to $500 per month. I don't spend that much a week usually!
