It varies but can get really high. I buy for me, ds, my sister, brother, and my ex is here a lot. I spend about $700 a month. I use coupons and shop sales in order to keep the budget down.
Quoting Mireya926:Wow I just spent $200 worth of groceries the highest ever!
What is your bill like?
I think I am about $300 - $350. I don't keep great track - I do one big shopping day a month (meat, sides, cereals etc.) and then I end up going once a week for milk, cheese, fruit and veggies.
I need to keep track of the extras, I am working on a budget for everything.
Quoting Loveplusmama:We always spend more when DH shops...he buys more snacks. We spend about 500-600/month probably. I don't track it closely. We rarely eat out, and I primarily cook fresh foods. My kids are good eaters. I can only imagine what the teen years will be like.
Quoting calsmom62:I'm watching my teen eat his sixth banana of the day, an hour and a half after dinner, since dinner----- two bananas, a cheese stick, a granola bar and a glass of juice.
