I go grocery shopping once a week, and I spend a hundred or less every time.  I know it used to be cheaper, but I'm only 23, and we've only been married three years.  I don't really know any different.

Just like I remember gas being less than a buck a gallon. Times have changed, nothing is like it was before. I hope you're not JUST now noticing the price increase! We can't get out of the store spending less than $150.

Yep groceries are expensive and the prices are prolly gonna get worse.  Being it's just me and my ds I only buy the necessities and we can eat cheaper by going to the dollar menu so I rarely cook.  Which means I barely spend 30 per week in groceries  :)

I was just talking about this the other day.  I remember paying $75 for a cart full of groceries.  I went to Safeway the other day and paid $85 and the cart wasn't even half full.

i can fill my cart at aldi for about $60. now that their produce is getting better i can avoid buying it at the grocery chain. it does suck that things are getting expensive tho.
