We are a family of 7. 4 kids (16,14, 9, 7) plus 3 adults. We have to make lunches for 3 for school, plus usually 2 adults. We eat dinner at home about 6 times a week. Breakfast at home 6+ days a week as well.
We are lucky to have military commissary benefits and we shop mostly at Costco and there. We do buy Milk at Safeway/Carrs since it is $3 a gallon or less.
When I figure in our cost of groceries, it includes EVERYTHING, from toilet paper to shampoo and eggs, meat vegies.... plus our pets eat RAW so that in about $125 of our monthly budget. Occasionally we shop at Natural Pantry to buy stuff like Millet that we cannot get anywhere else.
In a week, we average $250-300? Sometimes more, sometimes less. Kinda depends on what we are buying at costco and how long that something lasts.
We eat well, try to get lot of produce into the diet. We eat a lot of meat as well. My DH is a Diabetic. We try hard to buy more organic and healthy stuff. We very rarely buy chips and cookies and other not so healthy stuff. Always 100% juice, and real foods, lot of whole grains, etc. We make a lot of stuff from scratch, I make my own hummus, jams, etc.. We do not eat a lot of game meats as no one in my household hunts or fishes (we do not make good Alaskans in that respect) We enjoy a lot of the "finer things", as my Daughter says, like Baked Brie and Lamb Masala. We are passionate about food and it being YUMMY and good for you and our food bill reflects that. But I figure it balances out since we dont smoke or drink.
