a week on groceries? How many people and pets are you buying for?

We have been spending $160-$180 a week on 3 people, 4 pets but now I want to try to cut that in half.

That's alot of money. What do you think is the cause? Is it just the area you live in that things are expensive or do you buy alot of meat?

I'm hoping to get to that amount for the month.

I dont buy groceries every week. I buy twice a month. we usually spend about $450/month for 5 people (2 adults & 3 small children), 2 dogs and our chickens.

Does this include toiletries and cleaning supplies, etc?  I buy it all at the same time so I dont have a separate food only bill.

Yep for us it includes all that. We buy everything at the same time too.

Do you use coupons or buy in bulk? How do you stay in that budget? That's the budget I want to get to.

That's not bad since you have alot of mouths to feed. Do you buy bulk or coupon?
