we go once a week and spend between 50 and 100 depending on how much meat and pop we buy. We've been eating out a lot lately because I don't feel like cooking and nothing we have in the house sounds good. I'm trying to get better but the nausea is just making that impossible.

O goodness! I spend about 400 a month on true groceries. Now we eat out maybe 1-2 times a week just to get out and do something as a family. It's funny, I always go shopping for food when I am starving and grab EVERYTHING and it goes to waste! ughh!! haha

Lately, it's been every other week. I spend about $300 a month, but it's never enough, so I have to go in sometimes and get juice, or milk or bread, or something.

Our budget is $400 a month for food, tolietries, diapers, wipes, dog food, cosmetics, cleaners, and eating out.

We go shopping every 2 weeks and in between as needed. We have our set amount each month and once it is gone it is gone. We have ate out WAY to much in the past months and we agreed to no more of that. So if there is money left over at the end of the month we have a special treat out (besides fast food or something quick once or twice a month).

We spend about $100 a week, maybe more. I need to get better about coupons and meal planning.

between $650 and $800 / mo. It depends on what we run out of and how good the coupons are. 2 of us are gluten free, which comes at a significant cost increase (1 lb regular pasta = 79 cents on sale, 1lb gluten free pasta is $6-8 dollars depending on brand! )i bake a lot of things myself to cut some costs but the GF baking supplies can be outrageous too. One of my kids is sensitive to dairy and soy so we have to keep him in almond milk (about $6 a gallon). We are feeding 7 people, though the baby isnt eating much yet.
