 How much do you think you spend per week on groceries? Ours is outrageous and I'm not exactly sure what we spend?shopping

We are recovering from DH being out of work. I spent 71.00 on friday for our weeks worth, and I have to go get milk and butter today.

When life was more normal I spent at least 400 per month for 3 ppl, I was always at the store. I believe in budgeting...but ya know. simple frown

I spend about $150/week on groceries for the 4 of us.  But, we also buy meat and produce directly from the farmers and that is not part of the $150, as they're once a year costs.

Probably about 100 a week but I don't have kids at home now either

I don't really set a budget but I got to Walmart every 2 weeks and spend anywhere from $200-$250 but that also includes toiletries, paper towels, laundry detergent, etc. so the bill varies depending upon what I need. There are 3 of us (me, DH and DD) but I do like to stock up and have extra things on hand. For some reason during the winter I fool myself into thinking I'll be snowed in for weeks so I always stash stuff in the deep freeze or pantry. :)

We don't worry about it anymore so I'm not really sure what we spend. I used to spend about $125 per person for the household per month when the kids were in High School.

 Is it worth it to do that? I've always wanted to but its so much money up front!
