Groceries monthly or weekly? How much do you spend?

I am very curious to know how much people spend on groceries these days. By groceries I mean, toiletries, cleaning products, fresh produce, meat etc, basically how much it will cost to provide your families needs for a month?

We spend about $400-$500 a month as well for a family of 5, but I never have to buy cleaning products or toiletries every month. I buy stuff on sale so I have it when I need it on hand. So some months it can be a little less, just depends on what we want to eat.

we have a family of 6 and right now because i am the only one working and we don't make very much at all we get 700 a month in food stamps. for food we use every bit of that plus some cash. the 2 oldest boys use the same body wash shampoo and all since they have normal skin, my daughter has her own, baby has his own and dh and i have our own. in toiletries and cleaning supplies we spend around 200 on a month that we have to get everything and about 75 in between

We spend about $400 a month for a family of 5 as well.  I go shopping weekly and my goal is to spend $100 or less.

I usually get $100/week in groceries, but it will probably be a little less these days since the kids won't be with me to beg food when I shop anymore! =P
