      I try to get fresh fruit for our son (he’s 2). Last week, I reluctantly bought fresh peaches 3 for $5.00. I skipped the cherries (those dark burgundy colored ones) – selling for $3 a pound.

      One bag would have been $9. Too expensive for us right now. He loved the peaches.

      He got canned fruit for the remainder of his fruit. His grandmother got him some strawberries though. What a treat!

      10pt;font-family: Arial;”>Hi All, 10pt;font-family: Arial;”>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
      run.

      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!
