I do think I need to exercise a little more self control when we go to the store in the middle of the week to pick up the some stuff we run out of, I tend to do my compulsive buying then.: I plan on only picking up milk and come out with an extra 20$ worth of groceries.

Eight of us are home eating three meals a day. We also have a lot of company, usually at least one other family eats at our table each week, sometimes more.

I hope y'all don't mind me being nosy. I'm just wondering if I'm super extravagent or average or what. There are 6 people in my household (2 adults and 4 children ages 3-9.5) and lately I've been spending about $130/week on food only. (Not including beer for dh.) This gets us organic produce, organic beans and grains, hormone free milk, free trade coffee and free trade tea, cheese, cold cereal, frozen bagels, peanut butter, jelly, cold cereal, some soy products and very few convenience foods. So this works out to roughly $22 per person, per week. Actually, that doesn't seem so much when I put it that way.
Anyway, anyone feel like sharing?
