Our grocery expense seems to be outrageous. I also consider cleaning supplies, toiletries, pet food and the like to be considered part of our grocery bill. My dh says I should buy food alone at the grocery store and buy this other stuff elsewhere because only food should be considered part of the grocery bill. Why would I go to a seperate store to get these things when they are right in the next aisle? (unless of course if its cheaper elsewhere. at this point I might consider it) Do you count these things as part of your grocery bill and how much do you typically spend per month? I'm just trying to find out if I'm managing the grocery budget as badly as dh makes me feel I am or is the cost of food these days just that expensive.
