I was having a discussion the other day with one of my friends about how much we both spend on groceries every week and we both came out to around the same amount…but I am buying for 2 and he is only buying for himself. Hmmm, that started me wondering just how much people spend on food each week. For us, we buy our fruits and vegetables at the farmers market each Saturday morning and all the other stuff at either Whole Foods or Trader Joe’s. At the farmers market we spend about $40 and at the grocery store we spend about $75, for a total of about $115 each week or $460 each month. This is to feed both of us and I don’t consider it to be too much. We buy organic food as much as possible and we eat dinner at home probably about 6 nights a week. We both eat breakfast at home, make our own coffee at home, and my wife takes her lunch to work and I eat here at my desk at home.
That leads me to you…how much do you spend each week/month on groceries and how many people does this money feed? If you get a chance, leave a quick comment and let me know and I will compile a list of the responses in a future post so we can take a look at the food habits of the readers. This should be quite interesting!
