I can keep it under $250 for just food if I'm strict....under $350 if I'm being extravagant.  Yes, that includes meat costs.

I feed 5 adult appetites (2 adults, 2 teen boys, 12 yr old girl)

I'm very fortunate to live near an Amish-owned discount grocer.  They have good produce (and good prices).  More than half of my cart is usually produce.

About $300 for our family of 3. That includes all meals and paper products. Sometimes more if the month has bad sales or its a long month, like this one. Never under!

Way too much... At least $700 a month, and that is just a guess now. I don't even want to know. There are 5 of us, and one dog.

300 is my budget for my family of 5. This includes all food, cleaning supplies, paper products, and diapers for the baby. I shop meats on sale or managers special, produce at aldi, and still get mostly all brand name cleaning supplies and only use pampers swaddlers on the baby.
