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.

I'm about to move out on my own and was just wondering what other singles spend each month on groceries. It seems like what I've worked out so far for my buget has a huge chunk needed for food so I'm curious.
