I spend about $200 a month. About $75-100 of that is healthy things like fruits, fruit cups, yogurts, nuts etc. The rest is pop, chips, cookies etc. I want to cut back but I am addicted to snacking lol

Not much,I get a hundred a week for groceries,most of that goes to fresh fruits and veggies,sometimes I treat my kids to "junk food"but since I purged the house of it a few months ago they haven't been asking for junk food much.,we did however get a big box of Fruit By The Foot from Costco to put in their Lunches..I bought them Oreo Cookies last weekend for a treat..I buy my DS & DD Cool Ranch Doritos to snack on when they are on sale,my DS is addicted to Goldfish Crackers,my DD is more of a healthy eater..I am not allowed to have drinks with sugar in them so I admit I do buy 3 bottles of Diet Dr Pepper during my shopping trips because that is my favorite type of diet soda,other than that I drink water and my kids drink milk and water.

Idk. I buy a few snack but not a lot. Usually snack foods are crackers or jello and they are for lunches. Peanut butter and apples are a fave around here.

I honestly don't know but I spend anywhere from 250-300 a week on groceries, and we do a lot of snacking. Of course, my idea of snacking  might be different than some.

I want to say maybe around $100- we have 5 kids, but I make all of the snacks.  Granola bars, gram crackers are all homemade.  I pay for fruits and yogurts too, but I'm looking into how to make yogurt.  If we had a garden we could be all set, but unfortunately we can't grow anything on the property we rent :(

Maybe $75 at the very max. I buy like one box of granola bars, one package of pretzels, and one other thing (animal cookies, crackers), and then we mostly just snack on fruits like grapes, apples, carrots, celery, raw green beans, etc.

I have a yogurt machine my friend bought me off of amazon for a house warming gift. It's easy and great to use! It makes 5 small cups, each a serving size. Total time to make is about 9 hours or so.
