Re: How much is your monthly grocery budget?

We are a family of 6 -- 5 eaters.

In Ohio we were spending $450/month...though I suspect it would be up around $500-$550 with the price of groceries having gone up over the last 8 months. Now we are spending $800/month. There aren't a lot of stores here to choose from and coupons don't work that well without having those options. We eat all fresh local produce from the Farmer's Market. Dairy is SO expensive and I'm slowly cutting WAY back but it still won't ever be close to $500.

Oh, that includes all H&B too and miscellaneous (batteries, duct tape...). We shop at Costco or it would be even higher.
