Keep in mind, it's probably % of total income.  Americans have it pretty good!

I'm not, really.  Nigerians spend a LOT more of their income just to eat, while Americans have a lot more income.

Makes you think about our household income compared to other countries.

I imagine that food is harder to come by in some of those countries, so it is more expensive.

We probably spend like 400 bucks a month for the three of us on food, thats including diapers.
