I just started reading this thread & that is exactly what I thought. That is low compared to ours. I just heard the other day on the radio the 'average' family of 4 spends $946 per month on food. They didnt say if that included eating out or not. So I would say you are doing quite well by that number. I came here to find some tips to cut our bill down (825 Aug, 665 Sept + about 250/mo DH spends at Costco). Good Luck!
