I would say for a family of 4 we spend about 500 a month of food and household items. About 80 of that is on those smart ones tv dinners because if I don't have convenience foods for my hubby to grab for lunch, he will simply go out to lunch and end up spending much more. He refuses to do sandwiches which is really frustrating to me. I wish I could get our food and household stuff down lower

Would he take leftovers?  There are plenty of inexpensive Glad/Ziploc plastic trays to carry leftovers....not much difference from a TV dinner.

We spend around 10% on food here. I usually spend around $300 every 2 weeks. I have discovered that we spend less if I go every 2 weeks rather than every week. During the summer, with everyone home, we go through more food at the house. During the school year, the kids eat school lunch most of the time.
