  • How much do you spend at the grocery each week? Could you do any better or are you already stretching it?

    What is your biggest grocery expense (department-wise)?

  • Weekly, we spend around 100 but that's for 5 people.

    Meat is always the most expensive item. I try to stick w/ frozen chicken breasts, ground chicken/turkey, ground beef. About once a month or so we'll splurge on a nice rump roast.

    I think I'm stretching is as much as I can at this point. I've eliminiated buying junk food (for the most part) and just cook more often (as opposed to buying the quicker stuff).

  • We usually spend about $75/wk. Meat is always highest. I think we have cut ours back as far as we can.

  • I'd say we spend about $175 every 2 weeks... and that is cutting back... I have discovered it is just as expensive for us to cook at home as it is to eat out. I'm not going to live my life eating cheap meats and such... so we do buy some nicer cuts of meats occassionally.... we can't cut back anymore!

  • We are spending about $150 wk. We could cut back a bit, but not too much.

    Meat is a killer for us as are the dairy products. We eat a lot of cheese, milk, eggs. I try to have a meat course at each dinner, so that adds up.
