I guess that I am somewhere around $75-250 a week.
That includes food for 2 adults, 2 teens that eat a lot, a 6 year old, 2 dogs,
1 cat, 1 bunny and a turtle. This also includes toiletries, paper goods
(napkins, tp, pt, etc), as well as cleaning supplies and laundry
supplies. i have tried to get it down lower than this but what happens is
that the pantry gets too low and i just end up spending more in the long
i go to about 2- 3 stores a week and look for loss leaders/ coupons and
now with the price of gas try to save those trips until I am nearby to cluster
errands. My husband and I talk about the budget weekly and adjust whether
it needs to be a higher $200/week or a lower week. We have an allotment
of $35-100 once a week for going out to eat, that depends on our weekly income
too as it can vary a little.
We try not eat out more than that as
it can really add up quickly. I am finding this groups coupon suggestions
really helping too. Good Luck!
