I tell people when they first start couponing/deal seeking that they can save hundreds off of their grocery budget. Then shortly, they want to know how much my grocery budget is. And I am happy to tell them, because I want to encourage them as to what is possible. My family's grocery budget is $200 a month. Now, don't feel sorry for me! My pantries overfloweth!! That is for a family of 3. If we have another baby, I will be able to keep the budget the same. In fact, I could probably do less right now, but I am comfortable with that number. That breaks down to about $46 a week.
I am telling you this for a reason!
