I have been on a few money-saving sites where they talk about how much each family spends on groceries. But, I'm noticing that the budget can really vary from region to region. I was wondering two things:
1. What is your grocery budget in terms of a percentage of your overall budget? We spend about 8-10% of our budget on groceries. What is yours?
2. I'm curious as to what dollar amount you spend, particularly if you live in CA. I live in southern California, where things are rather expensive. We have 3 children, 2 adults (one nursing baby, no food yet), and I'm spending between $500 and $600 a month. What are you spending? For those who are in CA, is this a good amount or am I spending too much? I'm really trying to lower it these days.
