Do you have a grocery budget or do you just buy what you want at the grocery store? If you have a budget, how many are in your family and how much is your budget? We are a family of five and our budget is $600 a month.

My family is just me, DH, and our 2 year old daughter. I spend 100-120 dollars a week.

yes I have a budget. I try to stick to $75 a week, but when I go to the store I try to keep it at $60-$65 because dh uses $1-$2 on his lunches (he works at walmart)

We have a $150 limit every week. We are a family of 4.  It is less in the summer because we shop at farmers market and grow some of our own.

I have an budget of $300 to $400 a month. 200 of it is from food stamps. The other 100 $ to $200 I use from my child support. It is for me and my 2 kids.

I buy what I want. I'm thinking of starting a budget just because we eat out more than I think we should.
