At least $400, I would say.  That is about what it takes to eat healthy… I don’t actually budget groceries though, (because I think that what we eat= health= number 1) I just spend what we have left over when I can, and it ends up taking about that amount.

ETA:  I am super budget shopper to a certain extent.  I eat all organic and local, but I am very creative and cook a lot and we never eat out and always bring lunches.  Darling Husband makes amazing soups and I bake bread and bagels.  Now I’m hungry!  ๐Ÿ™‚

Around $350-$400…this is in New York City, we eat healthy and bring lunch to work almost every day.  I’m a super-smart shopper though….got that from my mom!

I agree, close to $400. Wouldn’t life be way easier if those 50 cent boxes of mac and cheese were healthy?

Goodness Australia is so expensive, I spent $200 a week on groceries ($800/ month) and we both buy our lunch each day ๐Ÿ™ But we do eat really healthy with lots of god quality lean meats and fruit and vegies.

I would say it really depends on where you live.  My Fiance and I spend about $400-500 per month, but we eat very healthy (organic fruits and veggies).

We spend about $300-$400 a month. We only eat out a lot when we don’t have groceries in the house. After doing a big grocery shop we take lunches every day and I find it saves SO MUCH money.

@cubaneli: I’ve gone grocery shopping in NJ and FL and Florida really isn’t that much cheaper. If you’re buying organic and fresh spending $400 sounds about right.

$350-$400 dollars for us. Oh and let me add that this bill includes things like dish soap, cleaning products, garbage bags, deodorant, sandwich bags, shampoo, ect.

About $300-400, depending on where I shop and what I buy.  But, it really depends on what you typically eat and where you live.

250-350 a month.  I try, but usually fail to take lunch everyday, so lunches usually add another 100 or so between the two of us.  We practically never eat out for dinner.
