I'm American but living abroad and looking to move back. I'm trying to figure out the cost of living to see if my husband could get a job to support us (we homeschool). A friend in Florida has offered to let us stay with her till we get our feet on the ground, and I'm not sure if grocery costs vary from state to state, but a friend in NY said if I'm really frugal I could do all groceries for $650/mo (which sounds sooooo high to me!!) and my Florida friend says $400/mo. I'm frugal, cook healthy food from scratch, lentils, dried beans, rice and all that. How low could my grocery bill be, including toilet paper, dish soap, etc? I appreciate your answers soo much, thank you!!!
Oh forgot to mention, it's 2 adults and 2 little girls ages 3 and 5.
