@shellyjean: That seems really good to me.  It’s about our average too.

That’s about what we spend too, it comes out to a little over $300/month. We eat at home for almost all of our meals.
 

ETA: We don’t coupon. Hopefully I’ll be able to start one day because it seems like people who do save a lot! And we live in California.

Ours is about the same as well. We never eat out and I coupon here and  there, but not a whole lot.

Food is EXPENSIVE!!!

woah – we’re two (in DC) and spend about $100 a week.  I buy a TON of produce, and maybe one piece of fish and one piece of chicken a week (for him and me respectively)…we don’t really buy ‘convenience foods’. We mainly go to Wegmans or Whole Foods. 

If it’s farmers market season, we spend more because I totally buy a lot of stuff there. 

We must be nuts!

We pay about $250 a month for groceries here in the Midwest. We eat out a lot (almost all lunches and dinner about twice a week), but we are also foodies who cook pretty extensive recipes a lot too.

I think what you are spending is about average. We budget $75.00 per week; sometimes we spend a little more; sometimes we spend a little less. This doesn’t include take out or going out though; those are in our entertainment budget.

For the two of us it’s about $100 per week/ week and a half if we buy all our groceries and make our own food.

Wow, I only spend about $30-50 a week on groceries (it’s just me at the moment). If I do coupon, I can usually get away for $20 or less buying twice as much or more than I’d normally buy.

My Fiance works out of town M-F, so I’m just feeding myself for the most part.  I spend about $30 a week on my food, which is a MASSIVE change from our previous life when he worked here and I was in an office with an awesome cafe – I was blowing through about $150 every 2 weeks, at least.

Couponing is awesome 🙂 I’ve only been doing it a few weeks but it makes a huge difference.

I am super jealous of your low grocery bills By The Way.

we currently spend about 2-300 per month on groceries, depending on where she shop and what’s on sale. Household is just my Fiance and I, and our puppy.

We probably spend $100 a week- for two people.  It surprises me if someone can do it for less, but we also eat organic and local.

I’m hoping that ours go down once our veggies in our garden start growing in! We buy A LOT of produce too and that gets expensive!
