What is a normal amount of money to spend on groceries per week for a family with one child??

my SO and i are practically arguing about this...he says $400 a month is normal, and i think it's way too much. even just ten years ago my family of EIGHT was living off $100/wk...which was obviously real tight, but i think if we're smart we can budget 300-350/month for groceries...

so does any one else have any ideas/opinions? anything would be useful, thanks!

  • I spend 100-150 every two weeks...I am a huge coupon shopper though and always have at least 100 dollars in coupons.. before coupons it was about 200-250 every 2 weeks...
