I also buy a lot of organic produce and I donít buy stuff with crap ingredients (no hydrogenated oils, no chemical preservatives). I also LOVE to cook, which doesnít help our budget.
Same here but I do know how much I spend. Our weekly budget for 2 adults, 2 toddlers and 3 dogs is $130. I shop at super walmart (our grocery store), BJs and Trader Joes. Also will start to hit the local farmer's market (year round) in order to get some fresher veggies. I try to do as much organic as will fit in our budget so for now that means mostly fruit and some of the more pesticide ridden veggies. Not all though.
I spend about $200 a week for 5 of us, and honestly, I wish I could spend more. I'd like to have salmon and shrimp every week, and have lots of good, healthy munchies lying around, instead of "have an apple, or a cheese stick!" every single day.
Some weeks I can spend around $50 for staples like milk, oj, eggs... Other weeks when I buy boxes of cereal, meats or cat & dog food it runs around $75. Rarely have I ever had a weekly total over $100, and that was if we were having a big family cookout or dinner.
We don't buy sodas, beer or a lot of meat, and DD eats lunch at school, so that lowers the grocery bill a bit too.
It just occured to me that mine is also for cat food and litter, etc. I'm wondering now what we actually spend on just food per week. I get it all at the same time (food, laundry supplies, paper supplies, toilet tissue, etc, etc, etc), so I bet the actual food is a lot less. We eat out a couple nights a week too, though, so that should be added in.
