5KidzRUs Posted January 16, 2011 Share Posted January 16, 2011 (edited) I bundle our food and household goods, pet food (3 pets), cleaners etc into one cost - We are averaging $300 to $400 a WEEK for all of the above - for a family of 6 grown people with healthy appetites. Is that insanely high? I have tried once a month cooking, once a week cooking, daily cooking - doesn't matter what I do the cost is about the same. Maybe I am too picky about what we eat - nearly no red meats (only deli slices for treat sometimes), soy milk, wheat bread ... We have lived all over the states and the $$ really doesn't change a whole lot. How do you big families limit your household spending? I would love to hear some ideas - or else I may have to get a job lol! Edited January 16, 2011 by 5KidzRUs Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
