how much do you spend on groceries each month?

I'm talking everything you buy in a grocery store, to include diapers, formula, health and beauty items, paper products, etc.  How much do you pay per month (including any PA). I cannot believe people can get away with only 300 a month for a family! I coupon and there is no way I could get it that low. Am I alone?

 

 

Edit: I guess I should add : How often do you eat out? That may have a lot to do with the grocery bill. We rarely eat out, so I buy lots of groceries

I shop at Aldis, and go every Tuesday to do my grocery shopping, I spend about $60 a week. And get no PA.

We spend about 85 a week for groceries and house hold supplies (including diapers for our 20
Month old.) But that's gonna go up as this baby can come any day and she's gonna need diapers and may or may not need formula.
