Lots of ladies have really neat sites on how to save money on groceries, like here and here and here to name only three. They save a LOT. I don’t come close, but do try to maintain a weekly budget of $90-$120 for groceries, usually spending toward the higher end but often enough at the lower end. When I want to be killer frugal, I spend about $90 for our family of five. This number includes food, toiletries, paper & cleaning products.
