    How much money do you spend on groceries ?

    In these bad economic times groceries are  taking a backseat
    in some households.

    It varies, but I guess it would average about £40 per week.  However, I do eat out a couple of time a week, which is far more expensive than eating at home, so this adds about £20 to the food bill.

    There are 5 people in my household,so we spend quite a lot on groceries.  It averages about $175-$200 per week if we do not eat out.

    Approximately $125 - $180 every couple weeks, so roughly three to four hundred a month. We used to go out a lot to eat, but the closer we've gotten to having our baby, the more we've bought food to make ourselves. It's been cheaper and often healthier.

    There are 2 adults and one child in our household. We spend around £60 on groceries each week. We don't eat out very often, perhaps once a month.

    About $140 a week for 4 people.  I try to cut the costs by cooking at home and shopping at club stores.

    I am employed as a professional cook and kitchen manager.  It IS a part of my job duties to "taste" and " approve" all food that is presented.

    These taste tests add up!  I am well fed.

    My hubby is a meat and potatoes kind of guy.

    As a careful and  aware shopper, I can buy a T-bone for less than I can buy  hamburger and the " dressings" to make it palatable and noteworthy.  I am blessed or perhaps, knowledable...........meat,  potatoes, and a veggie...........

    Really, eating well is not that hard,...........You first must know, what " eating good" means..

    Roughly.............150 to 175 a month, including,meat, potaoes, rice, noodles, dog food, paper towels and washing detergent.

    We plan on $600 a month for groceries for a family of 4. Another 100 or so for household supplies, from diapers to dish soap.
