On average how much do you spend on groceries?
« on: October 16, 2014, 07:32:09 pm »
So as a college student I have such a hard time deciding what to buy...To save i buy things that would last me longer and i've become a "vegetarian" 4 days a week.

This is mainly because I cant afford it, and i feel some what guilty when i but too much.

On average how much would you spend on groceries for yourself? Not a complete household but as an individual?

On average, mostly vegetarian and making alot of things from scratch & using coupons, buying from store ads as well.  Trying to $AVE as much as possible.  I usually spend $30 a week.

First of all, you are better off being a vegetarian anyway.  You will be healthier in the long run.  So don't knock it.  Personally I too buy lots of fruits and vegetables just for myself rather than meat.  So you are definitely on the right track!   :thumbsup:

I should start doing that. Unfortunately I don't have so many store options.

I spend about 350 a month, for the 2 of us, but that also includes some medical supplies  for me and vitamins for both. I rarely buy prepared food and when I cook with meat I also make enough for a couple of left over meals. We do eat a lot of veggies with it. My biggest problem is don't care a lot for beef and hubby really likes it. So now we split the cooking between different meats, as long as he gets beef a couple times a week, best of both worlds.

For a family of two (like mine), I would say $100 per week. Don't ask, LOL.
