How much do you spend grocery shopping per week??????

Posted by   + Show Post

How much do you spend weekly on grocery's. I try to work on a $400 budget a month and it never happens. We have a family of 5 including myself, 3 children ages 9, 6 & 4 and my better half.

Im trying to prove a point here to how much is "Normal" for a family. I do coupon & dont buy ANY junk....ice cream, cookies, little debbies....none of that.

Thanks for your imput!!!!

I spend 800 -900 a month for 3. This includes everything that one buys at a grocery store like paper towels, pull ups, shampoo, ect. I like to buy fresh and organic.

I'm really impressed by how little some of you spend! We are in Australia (if that makes a difference) but we spend up to $150 a week and there are only 3 of us!

 Congrats. (: Me too, but I'm only 7 weeks, so instead of cravings I'm in the food aversion, puke up everything I eat, phase. x.X But I've anticipated and added some money to the food budget in the coming months. Generally $150 is the highest I spend, like in weeks we eat gooood with multi-ingredient meals. If I buy pizza or a pre-made meal, I normally spend less. Just depends on how much I plan to cook.
