That's not outrageous. We averaged about $800/month for 4 people and 2 cats, including cleaning supplies napkins, etc.imsomeguy wrote:Just looking over some recent credit card bills and realized we are spending $600-700/month on groceries. We are a family of 4 and the majority of our meals are cooked at home, wife brings lunch to work but I usually eat out, kids get lunch at their daycare. Don't shop at a fancy supermarket and while we try to give the kids healthy food almost none of the food we buy is 'organic'. Wife makes sure to buy stuff on sale but we don't really have the space to buy in bulk (ie Costco).
I dunno just seems like a lot of money but we gotta eat and we never waste food.
What do you spend on groceries? How do you save money?
Everybody brought lunch from home, kids and adults included. I ate out for lunch only when needed for business.
