    I went today and at the 20 item or less aisle (19 items) I spent $50. :eek:

    I didn't even buy any meat, chicken or fish.

    I seldom use the 20 item or less aisle. Our grocer has several self check out machines, so having said that it is usually around $20 - $30.

    I always use the self-checkout machines (since I enjoying checking myself out all the time.. :biggrin1:) I don't usually drop a whole lot on food, with me it's only about between 20 and 30 bucks a week as well.

    I don't cook much, so that is why I don't spend that much at the Supermarket.

    We spend anywhere from 120 to 150$ per week. I really should try not to spend so much though...

    I spend between $120 and $160 a month on groceries. I don't eat out either. I just grew up economizing, and I can cook a lot for less.

    $100 or less for all grocery items, not just food, every 2 weeks.
    Add $30ish per week for fresh fruit and veggies from the farmer's market or fruit stand. I do not buy meat.

    I spend about $40-$65 per week on groceries. That includes wine occasionally or hard apple cider. This does not include cat food or supplies. Pancho's bill is about $35-$40 per month.

    Shopping for groceries these days is highway robbery. I remember being able to spend only $30 per week just about ten years ago. Prices are at least double since then...

    I admit to spending between $200.00 and $300.00 per week at the supermarket.
    That does not include what I spend at my butchers, seafood market, wine merchants or providores.

    phew!!! Thank you, DF. I was getting worried that I was the only one who spent a fair bit.

    I dare not even add up what I spend.... and the cash back to "feed" the kids' hungry hands is even higher!

    I require an almost no sodium diet. Plus I like organic food and things without preservatives. When I lived alone, in Jersey I would spend about $140-$170 a month on groceries. Which works out to $35-$42.50 a week on groceries.

    Now that I am in a house with 3 adults and special dietary requirements. We have one diabetic, two with high blood pressure and me. I guess we spend about $200-$300 on groceries a month.

    I usually spend about €45 per week on groceries for myself. That's about $70. And that's way more than one year ago. Too bad I'm not close enough to Holland to shop there. The 20km drive isn't worth it with gas being €1.60/l or $9.5/gallon.
