How much does it cost per month to feed a family of four, two in school?

  • $300.00
  • $350.00
  • $400.00
  • $450.00
  • $500.00
  • This also counts what you pay for school meals
  • It also counts those occasional going out dinners

There wasn't a choice for >$500. I guess I either spent way too much, or my DH and kids have huge appetities! It's not unusual for us to spend at least $150 each trip to the store, and we only go when DH is home on weekends. When I help the boys with groceries, I might spend $200 for a month's worth.

Frankly, fresh produce and meat cost a lot, and it's expensive to eat healthy and organic. yikes!

I'm going out to check on my lettuce seedlings, LOL!

I'm so horribly out of touch...I just feed me and 2 dogs, and my tenants and Danny pool with me for our shared meals.

I'm actually a very cheap date...I cruise the reduced meats (lol, I call it the rotten meat bin) and stop by the produce house.
