How much do you spend on groceries? Either per trip or per month? And how many people in your family? How do you save money?
I spend about $500 a month for my family of 5. It is ridiculous! But DH loves soda and he eats a lot, plus he packs his lunches for work so we have to have extra lunch stuff. I meal plan and make a list based on what I need for the meals, I also buy mostly generic stuff to lower the cost.
I have two boys my youngest is still mostly on breastmilk, but we spend around $600 a month. The reason being me and my son have Celiac disease and so that means no gluten and we can't have diary, my husband eats like we do at home so he doesn't get things contaminated(my son kept getting sick and we found it was because my husband had bread and stuff in the house). If you buy gluten free it cost almost 3times as much and regular food. It's such a pain. :(
I spend around 400-ish for 6 people. Sometimes more, sometimes less.
I used to do a LOT better, but I'm back on my soda kick and that stuff is a bit expensive.
