How much do you spend at the grocery store each week?

Or, every other week? Or, month?

Also, what is your favorite meal? -- Recipes appreciated!

We spend $400-$450 every month. We go shopping every 2 weeks when dh gets paid. Sometimes we have to get milk or other little things in between but I really try not.

We spend around 150 every other week.

Our new favorite recipe and it is super easy....
Sumac Roasted Chicken
Place chicken breasts or other pieces of chicken in pan
cut up onions and place in pan
drizzle olive oil
sprinkle on Sumac (sort of a sour herb but not as sour as lemon)
salt and pepper
cook at 425 till chicken is done

Serve with salad and YUM!!!!

If you can get chicken on sale it is pretty cheap and is excellent on pita's the next day. The onions are very tasty so I bet doing this with just veggies would be awesome!

That sounds really good! I have some chicken in the freezer that I wasn't sure what to do with (it was BOGO). I think I will try this...just have to get Sumac though...

We spend between $75-85 per week. We do spaghetti usually every week. I found a lot of good recipes in the $5 or less meal thread and the Crock Pot meal thread.

We try to stay under $360 a month, including any household supplies. I normally do a big shopping every two weeks spending about $125 each time. Then on the off week, I just get fresh produce, milk, and anything I forgot the first time around, haha!
