how much do you spend on groceries each month?

Posted by   + Show Post

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

400/month.  That includes food, diapers, tide, etc.  I breastfeed so formula has always been out, I coupon as well, and don't receive any type of pa.

I'm starting to feel better. I spend about 800 for a family of 4 (kids 5 and 7).  I used to get away with 600 years ago. Inflation.

Around $300- 500 some months are a bit higher when we have to do a stock up. For a family of 5 and three cats.

Family of 3, 2 lab/mastiff puppies, a chihuahua, a maltese and a cat....600ish depending on the season. Dh just brought back 100 lbs of meat, a mix of dear and hog (pork) so our budget will probably not be as high now.

For our family of four I was spening about $600 a month, but that doesn't include diapers for our toddler or all the eating out or my teenagers lunches. Now we have a newborn as well, so it's going to go up more with formula and more diapers.

i do use coupons and preplan meals.

Too much probably, but I like certain things. There are 3 of us and I spend about $800 a month.
