To all you penny savers out there . . . What is your monthly food budget?

For us plus a toddler and baby food it was $350 (although it was pricey in the north and we often went over). Now it's $450 a month for 3 adults (Nilesh's mum is here) and 2 toddlers. I'm curious to see what other people spend!

i roughly budget $40-50 a week for groceries. and $100 a month for eating out/entertainment. we are on the low end i know... and sometimes we overspend but usually not by much. good luck!

Budget???? What's that again?

We do $350. This includes some lunches out, Costco runs and my weekly Trader J's.

I am not a good penny saver, but our budget for groceries is $100/wk for 2 adults and a toddler. Don't let Jason read Brittany's response - he is currently under the impression that $100/wk is totally normal. Hehe.

I spend on average $190/month for just me (keep in mind that's five months in Europe and mostly Canada - it's been $160/month so far in the US). And dining out is about $40 a month.

$400/mo. which does NOT include eating out. That's a separate budget.
