To the people who spend $1000 on food every month.....

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
What in the world do you buy?!?! I absolutely HATE grocery shopping, so when I went out today I tried to buy enough to last us 3 weeks or so. Obviously I'm going to have to buy things like milk and produce before then, but I still spent less than $200 AND even bought snack stuff that we don't normally buy. I feel like I'd have to be eating steak and lobster every day to spend that much haha!

We spend 400-600.  It's us, our two boys, and the dog.

We spend about $400 a month, we have six, soon to be seven, people in my house, my husband, my 17 year old brother (I'm my younger siblings guardian), my 13 year old sister, 9 year old brother, 4 year old son, and myself, I'm 8 months pregnant. And we eat well, lots of meats, fruits, vegetables, good healthy meals, so I don't understand it when I see families of three spending $1000 on groceries.

I just spent over 500 yesterday but we just got a new house to fill withfood. Plus we have been eatin crappy food for about a month (restuarant food and cheap easy crap when we were in the travel trailer...yuck!)so I had to get good food.

We could eat that much but we have six people and dh and I tryin to put on weight.

A garden would help, along with a food cellar:)

Quoting mom2four1978:

 Some of it depends on where you live and family size.

We spend 1200.00 a month and I watch the ads and bargin shop.

We are a family of 7 and a gallon of milk here is 3.86. Eggs 2.78 a dozen

It really breaks down to only about 6.00 a day per person.




Wow! We spend the same for milk, but that is a lot for eggs! I just paid .79 a dozen today! We go through at least 3 dozen a week since here it's cheaper than cereal.

Where at in MO? I spent the first 27 years of my life in MO. My whole family still lives there.

Quoting raye-chan:

Sounds like here, too. I'm up in MO and our prices vary with each store. On average that's how much that stuff will start out at. >.< 

Quoting mom2four1978:

South central TX in a rural area. But the city near here is even more expensive.

Quoting raye-chan:

Sounds like the price of milk and eggs here. Where are you guys at if you don't mind me asking?

I buy a lot of fresh produce , lean meats ect , I spend about 150-200 a week on groceries and household products. Unless you have a large family1000 a month is a lot.

I spend about 800, but I could easily spend that if I had the money. I buy all organic though, and I really like expensive cheese. LOL
