About $1000 for food and household supplies for a family of 5 plus a small dog. We live in a small town and only have two very small locally owned stores, and things are very expensive here. They are the type of places that you can still charge your groceries to a store account and also have them delivered. Last month though, I spent $70 on very little and decided enough was enough because we were going to end up have a $1200 grocery bill and the thought of it made me sick. So we sat down and made a list of 35 meals and then went out of town to Walmart and bought the stuff to make the meals on the list. The only thing I didnt buy was beef because it is cheaper here and fresher too since they cut it in the store. I also will buy lunch meat, veggies and fruit, milk, and stuff that spoils here in town still. For 35 meals we spent $440 and I will probably spend another $300 here in town. Much better than the amounts Ive previously been spending. Kylee takes her lunch from home every day as do I(either makes a sandwich or takes leftovers), my husband takes leftovers and both boys buy their lunches at school. Weekends its pretty much fend for yourself for lunch. Not sure what the grocery game is, but I think Im going to check it out!
