My grocery bill is getting outrageous

We are starting to top over $500 per week on groceries.  It seems as soon as I buy groceries, everything is gone.  I limit convenience foods because that is the stuff that goes the fastest.  I usually buy a few things the kids want a couple of times per month and when it is gone, it's gone.  Even though almost everything I buy needs to be prepared, it still disappears.  I am going to have to find a way to cut back.  I am not sure how though.

WOW. That is a lot!! How many people in your family. Any dietary restrictions? Do you make a menu plan? How are you guys on portion control?

Sounds like my house too, hun.  Plus you have a newborn, so there are additional expenses with the baby.

We basically have 6 adults, 2 kids, and another 2 kids part-time.
