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

  Go and visit local food banks and soup kitchens and save a lot! What ever you cannot get, buy at the local stores.

With a family of 3 I spend about $75 a week on groceries. I use coupons though and theres sometimes that I go to 2 different stores for deals and I receive both weekly ads for those stores and I plan out all our meals breakfast lunch and dinner for a week. I was able to cut if from $120 to $75.

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?
I only spend about $20/week for my lunch $1 meals for work and a package of variety oatmeal. Throw in somejuice and that is about it. However I can spend that much on just munchies for Sunday football. What to do. Prices just keep rising.

Go hit up the 99 cent only store, they sell nice produce & items cheap.   You can feed yourself quite well there.   They even sell organic.     

If you want to put meat into your dishes, Walmart & Sam's Club sell Chicken *bleep* for $1.99/$1.88 a pound, which is cheap.   5 lbs of chicken for less than $10.00

If you are a starving student eating Ramen, add vegetables & a scambled raw egg to it, it will be slightly more nutritious & still cheap.

You can eat well for $25 dollars a week if you know where to shop.
