    Big Grin grocery shopping?

    Advertisements
    So were a family of 4 but our 6 month old just eats baby food right now not big food but it's still pricey anways just wondering for those with 4 or more in there family how much do you spend on grocery shopping each week/bi-weekly or once a month.

    So we buy grocerys to last us 2 weeks or 2 1/2 maybe and we spend between $170-180

    5 people 250+ per payday. Food is our biggest household expense. even shopping at wal-mart/commy ( when we had one) and using coupons, its still expensive.


    I will miss you SOS...
    Please be wary of what you post remember OPSEC is not just another acronym.

    I honestly have no clue. I just get things when I need them.

    We spend 350-400 a month. I also spend about $42 a month for Breanna to eat lunch at school. We are a family of 5 and the kids are 7, 2, and 11 months.

    I budget $250 for every two weeks, but I usually come in under the $200 mark. This includes all household stuff, toiletries, pet supplies and actual groceries/food.

    We're a family of 7 with a bunch of pets...
    We spend $250-350/2 weeks ($500-700/month)...But if I buckle down I can knock quite abit off that.

    Baby food, I found, was ridiculously expensive considering how little the baby ate of it - so I just started pureeing our meals and feeding him table food.
    Saved money and time.
