I spend about $150-180 a week for my family of five(2 adults, 3 kids.) I make a weekly trip to the local chain grocery store and pick up bits and pieces during the week at our local co-op and the village general store. This budget includes all toiletries, cleaning supplies, disposable diapers and good quality beer. We do not eat out--well, maybe once every few months, so that doesn't really count. DH makes and takes his lunches to work and the kids are homeschooled, so this covers everything that goes into our tummies! I rarely use coupons, as there aren't many for the products I want to buy. I don't read the circulars either, but I do have a pantry shortlist which I take along. I used to carefully write out menus for the week, but now I only do it in my head. If I see something on special that we'll use, I'll buy it and incorporate it into our menu. Generally I have two week's worth of standard menus, but it does vary a bit. Oh, and we do eat meat and fish, and I buy the nicest I can afford--free-range, antibiotic free, etc, but sometimes it's just the "regular stuff." I get some organic produce--probably about half. During the summer I use the local farmer's market, and that's all organic--and affordable!
