Also, how much does your family eat out??
I shop right after each payday- the 10th and the 25th. Just last week, our bill was $260!!!! And that didn't even include any meat!!!! There are 3 adults in our home and a 4 year old. I'm not even counting formula for Caroline in this purchase. I buy store brands as much as possible and don't buy anything premade (no chips or cookies or frozen meals) because I enjoy making things from scratch. Coupons aren't always helpful since the store brand is usually much cheaper. Wow, that totals $520 a month!!
What does your family do to keep the cost of food down?
