Do you go weekly? How much do you spend on food shopping incuding places like Costco?

We spend anywhere from $400 - $600 each month on groceries including our Costoco trips. I go shopping about every 10 days and Costco about once a month.

Ask me after I get my checkbook back in order and a budget started.
 
I sincerely have no clue!

This is another place that I KNOW I can cut down with. I spend way too much at the store and then feel like we have nothing to eat. I probably spend $500.00 a month or more at the store and I got a few times a month.

For a while I did my shopping online and they delivered it to us and I actually saved money doing it that way. I only got what I needed and wasn't going up and down the aisles grabbing things i don't need. I did it in the winter when it was tough to get out with our DD. My DH doesn't drive so it was just easier to do.

probably anywhere from 450-600 a month. It kinda depends on if it is durring the Summer or durring school.....I tend to have easier, lighter, less expensive meals durring the Summer time and durring school I cook a whole lot more. BUt it never fails, I always end up buying stuff I don't need......I usually have to go to the store twice a month for major shopping and then another 2 times for the little things like more milk, bread, juice, etc.

We were not spending nearly enough. So with the new job we are restocking our basics, filling our freezer and working out a new food budget. I would say it's going to be about 500 a month.
