Very interesting and useful chart. Thanks! For our family, the thrifty plan comes out to $775 and the low-cost to $1025 and the moderate to $1315. I believe I spend about $800-1000 including all toiletries, gardening supplies, cat supplies, and bulk food. We buy organic and local as much as possible, and have special dietary needs (I am GF and all of us are dairy-free, no cane sugar and minimal soy).
