    Default Grocery Bill?

    What is your average grocery bill / week and how many people are being fed out of it?

    Around $150 - 200, but the boss shops every other week and sometimes extends it out over 2 weeks before shopping again.

    2 Adults - 2 kids - 2 Guinee pigs - 2 Rabbits - 1 Dog - 1 indoor cat and 3 outdoor cats!

    Diapers are in that? That was the killer for us when my kids were small.

    But you probably need to add in there that we get pizza once a week ($20) and eat at a restruant at least every other week ($50).

    My wife has the answer to your problems...if you have big grocery stores close by where you live. She is doing something called the grocery game and has saved a ton of money. i.e. she will get 150 bucks worth the groceries and pay 70 dollars. When you sign up, just use her email address as a reference

    Were at about 120 to 130 a week for two adults and two rug rats. We usually don't buy meat, we get all of that in the fall. But that includes a little bit for dog food and a box of beer.

    The grocery game also allows you to buy stuff in bulk...you might not need 9 tubes of toothpaste, but if you can get them for 1.50 for 9 then you might as well buy them! And it is the name brand stuff that you use everyday. I am a big fan.

    She bought us 3 very nice NY Strip steaks the other night that sold for 40 bucks....she paid 13.

    I do once a month of about $250-$300 (Dry and frozen foods) and then weekly (fresh stuff) is about $40 a week. We are feeding 2 adults and 2 kids.
